Anne Sènoumè's story

Ms. A. Anne Sènoumè was born on July 26, 1970 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin.  Married to Mr. SETIN Noël, she is the mother of four children who are all in school.  She has lived with her family in Djeffa, in the community of Sèmè-Podji, for about fifteen years.  The couple jointly cover their family's difference expenses. 

Anne has had very little schooling.  For about ten years, she has been making and selling akassa (a local food made with corn starch) at her home.  Secondarily, she sell kerosene out of her home.  She gets her provisions at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. 

She is a previous client of ALIDé having already had five loans, which were all repaid.  With regard to bolstering her food production and satisfying her customers further, Anne is requesting another loan from ALIDé.
