Adonon's story

Born in Benin in 1973, Adonon is married to Marcellin. The couple has three children, who all attend school and depend on them financially. Adonon lives with her husband and children. She takes care of the various family expenses with her husband. She never went to school.
To meet her needs and her children's, Adonon sells gourds, earthenware, and as a secondary activity, corn. In parallel to this activity, she sells traditional medicinal plants. She gets her supplies from a market in northern Benin. This business generates revenues which help her cover her family's various expenses.
With the objective to further raise her activity level and to increase her profits, Adonon is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans she benefited from were repaid successfully.
