Espérance's story

Espérance is 48 years old and married to a surveyor named Athanase. The couple have four children. None of the children attend school, and none live with her. Espérance lives alone and provides for herself. To achieve this, she has sold various food items at a market in Benin for nine years. She gets her supplies in Benin. This is the second time Espérance is seeking a loan with ALIDÉ, with the goal of raising the level of her business and increasing her sales and income.
