Léa Victorine is married to a man named Julien. The couple has one child in school and in their care. Léa Victorine lives together with her husband and child.

To cope with her various expenses, Léa Victorine has sold corn and manioc flour in her area for the last eight years. Léa Victorine stocks up in an area of Benin. In seeking the satisfaction of her clients and with an eye to increasing her business activities, Léa Victorine is asking for a first loan from Alidé, together with the other members of the group NOUWAGNONGBE. This loan will help them to better respond to the demands of their clients and to make higher profits.
