Safouratou is 43 years old and lives in Benin. She did not go to school. She is married to a man named Pascal. The couple has four children, all of whom go to school and are in their care. Safouratou lives with her husband and children. She and her husband are both responsible for meeting the household's various expenses.

In order to meet her expenses, Safouratou sells corn and fabric in a region of Benin. She obtains her supplies in a market in Benin. In order to satisfy her customers and increase turnover and revenue, Safouratou and the other GBENONKPO 145 members are asking ALIDé for a fourth loan. The previous loans have all been fully repaid.
