Sénoumé Fidèle's story

Sénoumé Fidèle Z. was born on April 26, 1981 in the neighborhood of Enagnon in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, and still lives there. She is married to Bienvenu Honfo, an electrician, and is the mother of two children who attend school. She lives with her husband and her children. Both parents provide for their family. Sénoumé Fidèle never attended school.

To provide for herself, Sénoumé Fidèle has sold hair products in Akpakpa-Dodomé for 5 years. She gets her supplies at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. She was already granted a loan by Alidé which she repaid on schedule. Sénoumé Fidèle came now to Alidé and applied for another loan which she will use to bolster her business and better keep up with her customers' demand.
