Adandédjan's story

Adandédjan is 40 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to a merchant named Marie. The couple has five dependent children, four of whom are their own. Not all children attend school. The whole family lives together. The couple handle together the various household responsibilities. To support himself and his family, Adandédjan runs a business turning palm nuts into palm oil. As a sideline he also learned the trade of masonry, and has been practicing this profession with a great passion for four years. With the income that he earns, Adandédjan is able to provide for his family’s needs. In order to meet the needs of a growing customer base, Adandédjan is seeking a third loan from ALIDé. He buys his stock of palm nuts in Benin. All previous credits granted to Adandédjan were repaid without problems.
