Médéssè Catherine's story

Médéssè Catherine is 33 years old and is married to an electrician named Epiphane. Médéssè Catherine did not go to school. The couple has three children, all in school and under their care. Médéssè Catherine helps her husband by taking care of the diverse family responsibilities together with him. For about 10 years, Médéssè Catherine has been selling fish in her region. On the other hand Médéssè Catherine buys her products in another region of Bénin. This is the fourth time that Médéssè Catherine is requesting a loan from ALIDé, a loan that will help her to raise the level of her business and better satisfy her clientèle. The previous loans were well repaid.
