Victoire's story

Born in 1971, Victoire is married to Joseph, a baker. The spouses have four dependent children, all in school. Victoire lives with her husband and children. Victoire and her husband jointly provide for household needs. For about seven years, Victoire has been selling fruits as a street vendor. She stocks up at a market in the south of Benin. This business activity brings her an income allowing her to cover various family needs. With the view of expanding her business further and increasing her revenues, Victoire is seeking a fourth loan from ALIDe. Her first three loans have been duly repaid.
