Kuavi Charlotte's story

Kuavi Charlotte was born on 11th May 1983 in Benin. She is married and mother to three children, all of whom are at school. Kuavi Charlotte lives with her family in a town in Benin. She sells corn in a shop which she has installed in her home, and she gets her supplies in the north of Benin. This business procures her an income which helps her to contribute to the family expenses. Kuavi Charlotte's ambition is to raise her business volume and expand her business by opening a second shop to sell her products; this will allow her to increase her turnover and income but at the same time respond better to customer demand. In order to do all this, she is for the first time requesting a loan from Alidé.
