Daniel's story

Daniel is 29 years old and lives in Benin. He did not go to school and he is now married to a woman called Akpéné. The couple has six children in their care, four of whom are their own children. Some of the children are at school. Daniel lives with his wife and children. The couple cover the various household expenses between them. In order to provide for the family's various needs, Daniel sells food (sauces made with pork) and has been doing this for the past 20 years in his region. He gets his supplies in another region of Benin. Thanks to the income he generates from his business, Daniel is able to contribute to the various household expenses. In order to satisfy the demands of his ever-growing customer base, he is requesting a second loan from Alidé. The first loan has been repaid in full.
