Kifouli's story

Kifouli is 43 years old and lives in Benin. Kifouli is married to a trader named Rosine. Kifouli left school at primary level and then learned to be a mechanic. The couple has five children, some of whom are in school. In addition to their own children, the couple also takes care of two other children. Kifouli and his wife cover the various household expenses together. In order to take care of the various expenses, Kifouli has been working as a mechanic for around twenty four years. Besides this activity, Kifouli also sells spare parts and lubricants. This activity allows him to meet the needs of his children and satisfy their needs. Kifouli would like to increase the level of his business by purchasing spare parts and lubricants, which will enable him to effectively meet the needs of his customers. For this reason, Kifouli is requesting his third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans have been repaid.
