Adiatou's story

Adiatou was born in Benin in 1982. She is married to Idrissou. The spouses have two children, all attending school and in their care. Adiatou lives with her husband and the children. She shares household expenses with her husband. Adiatou has had very little formal education.

To provide for her needs and those of her children, she sells fabrics in her neighborhood. She gets her supplies at one of the largest markets in Benin. Thanks to her income from this activity, she pays for the various family expenses. In order to continuously strengthen her activity level and increase her profit, Adiatou came to the microfinance institution Alidé and applied for her third loan. The previous two loans have been repaid on schedule.
