Antoinette's story

Antoinette is 42 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to a man called Yves. Antoinette attended school very little. She has four children, all of whom are at school and in their care. Antoinette covers the various household expenses together with her husband and children. In order to contribute to the family's various needs, Antoinette has been selling corn, cassava flour and various other products (rice, pasta, vegetable oil, etc..) for the past four years in her district of Benin. She gets her supplies in a region of Benin. The income generated by her activites allows Antoinette to contribute to the family's various expenses. In order to satisfy the needs of her ever-growing customer base, she is requesting a second loan from Alidé. The previous loan she received has been fully repaid.
