Godonou Justin's story

Godonou Justin is 45 years old and is married to a trader named Philomène. They have twelve children, some at school and all living at home. In addition to their own children, they have two other dependent children. Godonou Justin lives together with his wife and children. Godonou Justin did not go to school. The couple cover the family's expenses between them. In order to meet his needs and those of his family, Godonou Justin has, for about the last forty years, been a farmer of cereals (beans and corn), and of vegetables (peppers and okra) - which he sells in a market in Benin. Alongside this activity, Godonou Justin goes fishing. He does all this in his local area. In order to strengthen his business, and better meet his customers' needs, Godonou Justin is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDé. His ambition is to increase the scale of his business. Godonou Justin's first three loans have all been repaid.
