Agathe's story

Agathe A. was born on 31/07/1978 in the city of Pobe. Agathe is married to Raphael Ahounou. Agathe is mother of two children but she has anonther in her care that is not her child. Agath lives with her children and she is the sole breadwinner of the family. Agathe is a seamstress but she also sells various items (candies, cookies, boxes of milk, sardines, tomatoes, sugar, pastas, laundry detergents, dish soaps, beauty bars, batteries, candles etc.). Agatha purchases her inventory in Cotonou, the financial capital of Benin, and she resells them in the Djegan Daho district of Porto-Novo, capital city of Benin. Agathe has had two previous loans with Alide (Kiva Field Partner) to benefit her business. Agathe has never had problems repaying her loans, and so she requests a new loan to improve her seamstress business.
