Loko Chantal's story

Loko Chantal was born in Benin in 1965. She is married to Victor, a teacher, and she is the mother of three dependent children who all attend school. In addition to her own children, Loko Chantal also has five other children in her care. She and her family live together in a city of Benin.

Loko Chantal sells various products from her home (sugar, pasta, milk, batteries, soap, rice, cassava flour, fresh eggs, vegetable oil, etc.). She buys her merchandise in Benin. The income she earns from this activity allows her to help pay for the family expenses.

Loko Chantal hopes to bolster and diversify her activity by buying other miscellaneous products, which should help not only to boost her revenue and profits, but also to better meet the needs of her customers. To that end, she is seeking another loan from ALIDé.
