Jeanne's story

Jeanne E. was born in 1979 in Houngomé, Benin and is married to Jespère Degan, a butcher. They have five children, all of whom are in school. For about 10 years, the family has lived in PK11, in the Sèmè-Podji commune in Benin. Jeanne never went to school. In order to meet her needs, as well as those of her family, Jeanne sells beverages through the distribution system. Jeanne gets her stock at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. Jeanne has been doing this for 8 years. Jeanne's customer base has been growing more and more, and she would like to improve her business so she can meet her customers' demands better and make more money. This is why she is requesting her second loan through ALIDé. Her first loan was repaid in full.
