Angèle's story

Angèle G. was born in 1975 in Comé, in the south of Benin, and is married to Edgard Awo, a welder. Angèle is a mother of 2 schooled children, and has been living in Abomey Calavi, in the south of Benin, for 3 years now. Her revenues made from the sale of electrical supplies (light bulbs, power bars, light switches, etc.), school supplies and fabrics, allowed Angèle to contribute to her family's expenditures. Angèle purchases her products in Dantokpa, a large international market in Benin, as well as in Lomé (in Benin's neighboring country of Togo); and resells them in Cocotomey, in Cotonou. Angèle has fifteen years of experience in this domain. To continue developing her current business, and to later create a sales company of electrical supplies, Angèle is requesting a loan with Alidé.
