Abdou Fataï Olayidé's story

Abdou Fataï Olayidé is 46 years old and lives in Benin. He attended primary school and quit to learn the trade of mechanic. He also sells spare parts as a sideline, which allows him to support himself. He is married to a woman named Raya. The couple have six children, all in school. They also have two other dependent children. Abdou Fataï Olayidé lives with his wife and children, and the couple handle together the various household expenses. Abdou Fataï Olayidé has been a mechanic for about 31 years. He gets his supplies in Nigeria, sometimes in Benin. In order to meet the needs of a growing customer base, he is seeking a third loan from ALIDé. Both previous loans were correctly repaid.
