A loan of $225 helped buying cloth.


Béatrice's story

D. Béatrice was born in 1973 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, and lives in Agbodjèdo, a district of Cotonou.  She is married to HOUNKPEVI and is the mother of three children, who have all attended school.  She no longer has anyone to support.  She lives together with her husband and children. 

Béatrice backs up her husband regarding family expenses.  So, to take part in covering family expenses, she sells cloth, which is purchased from Dantokpa, the international market of Benin, where she also sells items from place to place and by the distribution system.  She did not attend school but has been operating this business for almost seven years. 

As a loyal ALIDé client, Béatrice has already had two loans, which have both been repaid. She would like to bolster her business to satisfy the diverse needs of her customers.  This is why she would like to obtain a third loan from ALIDé.
