Anne B.'s story

Anne B. G. has lived in the Irédé neighborhood of Cotonou, the economic capitol of Bénin for a decade. Married to Tidjani Raman, Anne is the mother of two children whom she sends to school. Anne lives with her husband and children. The couple shares the family responsibilities. Having never been to school, Anne was lead to the sale of corn and akassa (a local food made from a base of corn starch) from her home as a job. As a supplemental income, Anne also sells bundles of firewood. Anne buys her product at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. Anne is a former client of ALIDé who has always well carried out her repayments. Anne's cliental increases from day to day, and she no longer manages to satisfy all of her customers considering the small amount of cash she has at her disposal. It is for this reason she would like to strengthen her business with another loan.
