Born in Benin in 1981, Brigitte is married to Pascal, an administrative assistant. The couple has three children, who all attend school and still depend on them financially. Brigitte and her husband take care of the various family expenses together. Brigitte lives together with her husband and children.
After going to school up to high-school level, Brigitte is active as a fruit seller in Benin, selling pineapples, oranges, coconuts, etc. Brigitte gets her supplies in one of Benin's markets. This is the second time that she is requesting funding from ALIDé in order to increase her business and to better satisfy demand from her customers. Her first loan was repaid correctly.
