Abiba's story

Y. Abiba was born around 1982 in northern Benin. She is unmarried and has no children. Abiba is from a very poor family. She has come to Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, in search of money, so she got started in basic food catering, selling a couscous made from cassava tubers called achèkè locally. To support her business, she has need of funding. This is why she's requesting a loan from ALIDÉ.
