A loan of $900 helped to buy jewelry.


Moudjibatou's story

E. Moudjibatou was born on March 13, 1959 in Porto-Novo, the administrative and political capital of the Republic of Benin.  She is married to LAWANI Affissou Lay, a shopkeeper.  This couple has five children to support.  Four of them are their own.  For four years, the family has been residing in Donatin, a district of Cotonou.  Thanks to the income from her business, Moudjibatou comes to her husband's aid in covering family expenses. 

Moudjibatou sells jewelry wholesale at Dantokpa, the grand international marketplace in Benin.  She goes to China to purchase her jewelry.  She already has three years of experience in this business. 

She had three loans with ALIDé before and has repaid them.  She was able to use them to raise her level of business.  To continue to develop her business, Moudjibatou is asking for a fourth loan to bolster her working capital.
