Abibatou's story

Abibatou is 39 years old and lives in Benin. Abibatou has never attended school. Abibatou is married to Moussèdikou; together they have four children, all of whom attend school and are dependents. In addition to their children, the couple takes care of another child as well.

Abibatou lives together with her children and her husband. Abibatou and her husband both provide for the numerous household necessities. In order to take care of these needs, Abibatou sells food essentials (corn, beans, rice, flour) in a Benin market. Abibatou stocks up in a Benin town and also in the surrounding region. Thanks to her profits, Abibatou is able to assuage the many expenses of her household.

In order to satisfy the needs of her ever-growing clientele, Abibatou is asking for her second loan via ALIDé. The loan Abibatou previously received was properly repaid.
