Finagnon Jean's story

Finagnon Jean is 49 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to a seller named Houévoh. Finagnon Jean only went to school for a very short period of time, then learned to become a metal scrap dealer. He and his wife have seven children whom they financially support. Some of his children are in school. The couple jointly takes care of the household expenses. In order to cover his various expenses, Finagnon Jean has been working as a metal scrap dealer for about thirty years. This activity allows him to provide for himself and his children. In order to upgrade the equipment in his shop, Finagnon Jean would like to purchase some shears, rods and hammers. This will allow him to efficiently meet the needs of his customers. For this reason, Finagnon Jean is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. His previous two loans were well repaid.
