Justine's story

Born in 1951, Justine N. has lived for around twenty years in the Ayélawadiè district of Cotonou, the economic capital of Bénin. She is a widow with one child who attends school. Justine covers the various family expenses herself. She has never been to school. For almost 25 years Justine has had a business selling fabric through the distribution system. This activity generates income which helps her to provide for her various needs. She buys her fabric in Lomé in Togo, as well as in Nigeria, both of these countries bordering on Bénin. Justine is an old customer of ALIDé and has always repaid her loans without problem. Faced with growing customer demand, she is requesting another loan in order to increase her stock of products and better satisfy her customers.
