A loan of $650 helped to purchase electronics parts.

Charles's story

Charles is 35 years old and married to Dotou, a tradeswoman; he lives with her and their children. The couple have four children in their care, three of whom are theirs. Some of the children attend school. Charles and his wife work together to see to the family's needs. He left school after second grade and then trained in electronics - he has now been working in this field for nine years and it enables him to see to his family's demands. He sources his goods from Benin's neighbouring state, Nigeria. This is the third loan that Charles has sought from ALIDé. This loan will enable him to better equip his studio by enabling him to purchase electronics parts, so that he may better see to his customers' demands and boost his business revenue.
