Julienne's story

Julienne D. was born in 1983 in Dogbo, Benin. Married to Edouard AGBOGBONON, she is the mother of three children who are all attending (or have attended) school. For the past three years, Julienne has been living with her husband and children in the Djeffa borough of the Sèmè-Podji commune. The couple shares responsibility for family expenses.

Julienne has not attended school. For the past seven years she has sold sauce condiments (fresh tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, etc.) from her home, as well as fresh produce (corn, beans, etc.). She gets her supplies from Dantokpa, Benin’s international market.

Julienne is a regular client of ALIDé, having already been granted three previous loans, all fully reimbursed. Faced with increasing customer requests, she wishes to increase the level of her activity and make more profit. This is why she is requesting a fourth loan.
