Basilia Solange's story

Born on January 2, 1969, in Benin, Basilia Solange is a widow living alone with her children. She has three children, all who have completed or are attending school, two of whom are still under her care. Her education ended after primary school. To meet her and her children’s needs, Basilia Solange has been selling various products (rice, corn, beans, pasta, etc.) for about 15 years. Along with this business, she sells ice cream and bissap (a non-alcoholic drink made from hibiscus). Basilia Solange buys her supplies in one of the largest markets in Benin. This business earns her income to help her cover her family’s various expenses. In order to raise the level of her business activity and increase her profits, she is requesting her first loan through ALIDé.
