Hountin Joel's story

Hountin Joel is 48 years old and lives in Benin. He never attended school. He is a widower and the father of five children, all in school and all his dependents. He lives alone with his children and provides for them alone.

Hountin Joel practices traditional medicine, which allows him to take care of his children's needs without any major difficulty. He has been practicing his activity, locally, for about ten years. He buys his products in Benin and Nigeria.

In order to better meet the needs of an increasing number of customers, he is requesting a second loan from ALIDé. The loan he previously received was duly repaid.
