Honorine's story

D. Honorine was born in 1974 and is married to VLAFONOU Martin, a driver.  The couple still have no children.  Martin in the only one covering family expenses.  For just a year now, Honorine and her husband have been living in the district of Tonato in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. 

Honorine stopped attending class in primary school.  She has been selling food (rice, beans) for a year out of her parents' home in Cotonou. She had an ALIDé loan before, which she had repaid.  She would like to diversify her business and to enlarge it further.  This is why she's requesting a second ALIDé loan.
