Sènana Marie's story

Sènana Marie is 53 years old and married to Louis. The couple are raising their 4 children, all of whom attend school, and they both contribute to the household expenses.

Sènana Marie did not go to school. In order to be able to take care of her needs and those of her family, she has been working in the processing industry for around 15 years. She also has a sideline business selling cereals, charcoal and various other products to local customers. She gets her supplies in Benin.

Sènana Marie is requesting a 4th loan in order to restock on supplies, so that she can better respond to customer demand and increase her level of business. She has fully repaid her 3 previous loans from ALIDé.
