Justine's story

Justine is 46 years old and lives in Benin. She left school at the secondary level and is now married to a man named Joseph.

Justine and her husband have three children, all in school and their dependents. The couple jointly takes care of the various needs of the household.

To cover her various needs and those of her children, Justine has been selling maize and cassava flour for almost eight years, in her shop, in Benin. She stocks up in northern Benin.

Thanks to the income she makes through this activity, she contributes to her family's various expenses.

In order to meet the needs of an increasing number of customers, she is requesting a fifth loan from ALIDé. Her previous loans have been duly repaid.
