Geneviève's story

Geneviève A. was born in 1975 and has lived for 25 years in the vicinity of Fiégnon in Cotonou, the economic capital of Bénin. Married to Chérif BALOGOUN, a surveyor, Geneviève has two children, both at school. Geneviève lives with her children and her husband. The couple cover the household expenses between them. Geneviève has been to primary school only. For 12 years now Geneviève has been selling smoked fish and various other products at the market in Fiégnon. She gets her supplies at the seashore and also at Dantokpa, the international market of Bénin. Geneviève has already had three loans from ALIDé, all of which have been repaid without problem. Geneviève would like to increase her working capital and expand her business. It is for this reason that Geneviève is asking for a fourth loan from ALIDé.
