Noussirath's story

Noussirath Z. was born in 1986 and for the last 10 years she has been living in Midombo, a neighborhood of Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Noussirath is married to Louis Hounhoui, an automobile electrician. She is illiterate and the mother of a child attending school. The couple lives together with their child and shares in supporting the various family expenses.

Noussirath goes from place to place selling toothpastes. In addition to this activity, she also sells cosmetic products. To deal with the growth of her business and to increase her stock of goods (toothpastes and toothbrushes) Noussirath is requesting a loan for the third time from ALIDé. The previous loans have been fully reimbursed.

Her personal ambition is to have her own shop and for her business to thrive. She rarely encounters any problems while running her business.
