A loan of $400 helped to buy film and frames for photographs and some video cassettes.


Mathias's story

Mathias is 31 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to a clothier named Babine. Mathias left school at the primary grade level. The couple has two children, one of whom is in school. Both children are in their care. The couple jointly ensure that the various household expenses are covered. To help with the diverse needs of the family, Mathias has been working in the photography trade in his region. Thanks to the income this business generates, he is helping to cover the different family expenses. To satisfy the needs of his burgeoning customer base, Mathias would like to do better at equipping his workshop by acquiring some film and other necessary items for his business to operate properly. To do so, Mathias is requesting a loan from ALIDé for a second time. The loan previously received by Mathias was indeed repaid.
