Mondoukpè's story

Mondoukpè is 36 years old and lives in Benin. She never went to school. She has five dependent children, four of them her own children. All the children attend school. Mondoukpè lives with her children and her husband, and the couple handle together the various household responsibilities.

To help support her family, Mondoukpè learned to make jewelry, which she then sells. She also sells beverages and various other products. She has been practicing this activity in her district of Benin for 18 years. She buys her stock in a market of Benin. The income earned through her activities has allowed her to help with the household expenses.

To meet the needs of a growing customer base, Mondoukpè is seeking a fourth loan from ALIDé. All three previous loans were repaid without incident
