Suzanne has never been to school nor learnt a craft. As a child, Suzanne went to live with a female relative who introduced her to commerce. For about a decade, Suzanne has had her own business selling a variety of items: shoes, handbags, drinking glasses, etc. She has already had four loans from Alidé, which she repaid successfully. Suzanne is requesting a fifth loan from Alidé to increase her stock of shoes in order to better satisfy her customers.
