Mondoukpè Rachelle's story

Mondoukpè Rachelle is 34 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to Joseph, a civil servant. The couple has four dependent children; all are in school. The children live together with their parents. The couple takes care of the various household expenses together. In order to provide for the family, Mondoukpè Rachelle has been selling plumbing materials (pipe, cutters, sheet metal, and pots of glue). She also sells coal and various articles on the side. Thanks to the revenue that this business generates, she pays her share of the household expenses. To satisfy the demands of her growing clientele, Mondoukpè Rachelle is asking for a fourth loan from ALIDé. The three loans that she previously received have been fully repaid.
