A loan of $1,375 helped to buy pigs.


Gnonsou Maurice's story

Gnonsou Maurice is 42 years old and lives in Benin. He did not attend school. He is married to Mondoukpè. The couple support five children, of whom four are their own. All of the children are in school. Gnonsou Maurice lives together with his children and wife. The couple jointly ensure that the diverse household expenses are covered.

To meet the diverse household needs, Gnonsou Maurice sells pigs, and he processes palm nuts into palm wine on a secondary basis. He has been in this business for fifteen years in his region. He gets his supplies from a region in Benin. Thanks to the revenues that this business generates for him, he helps cover the different expenses at home.

To meet the needs of his burgeoning customer base, Gnonsou Maurice is requesting for the first time a loan from ALIDé.
