Olawalé Pascal's story

Olawalé Pascal was born in 1967 in Omou in the Ouémé department. He is married to Brigitte, a shopkeeper. The couple have six children in their care, of whom five are their own. All of the children attend or have attended school. Olawalé Pascal ended his studies in secondary school and trained to be a welder. He has practiced this profession passionately for 21 years, which has allowed him to meet his customers' demands and to provide for his own family. He would like to enlarge his workshop by supplying himself with welding equipment (a press, iron, a drill, etc.). Olawalé Pascal gets his supplies in Porto-Novo, the administrative capital of Benin. This is the second time he is seeking financial support through ALIDÉ (one of Kiva's field partners). This will certainly allow him to raise the level of his business and increase both his clientele and his income.
