Antoinette Clémence's story

Antoinette Clémence D. M. was born 12 October 1963 in Ouidah, a historic city in Benin. She is the mother of six children, all of whom have had schooling, but one of the children is no longer under her care. Antoinette Clémence lives no longer with her husband; she lives alone with her children and is their sole support for family expenses.
She settled six years ago in the Fidjrossè Kpota borough of Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin.

For the last thirty years, seeking to ensure the well-being of her children and meet her own needs, Antoinette Clémence has been retailing various products from her home (pasta, canned goods, sugar, soap, toilet paper, milk, etc.). She gets her supplies from Cotonou.

Antoinette Clémence is a regular client of ALIDé, and reimburses correctly her loans. She wants to bolster her business and increase customer satisfaction, which is why she is requesting another loan from ALIDé.
