Gbadechiré Emilienne's story

Gbadechiré Emilienne was born on 19 September 1979 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Married to Jean Dada, a welder, Emilienne is the mother of two children, of whom one has received schooling. Only one child is in her care. For about seven years, Emilienne has lived in Ekpè, in the commune of Sèmè-Podji, with her family. The couple share the various family expenses.

Emilienne did not go to school but learned hairstyling. She has been carrying out this profession for eleven years and also sells hair extensions and hair care products in her workshop. Emilienne wishes to increase her stock of products and equip her hair salon with different and varied products so as to attract more customers. For this reason, Emilienne is asking for a loan from ALIDé for the first time.
