H. Agnès's story

Agnès was born on the 7th January 1965 in Benin. She is married to a primary school teacher called Pierre with whom she has five children who all attend school. She lives with her husband and children, and works with him to see to the family's needs. She never went to school and today sells prepared food (rice, beans) from a market in Benin. She sources her goods from one of Benin's markets, and the revenue from selling them helps her to see to her family's costs. In order to boost her business and grow her profit levels she is seeking a loan from ALIDé.
