Mètohoué Vincent's story

Mètohoué Vincent is 32 years old and lives in Bénin. He is married to a woman named Célestine. He did not go to school much. The couple have five dependent children, all in school - four of whom are their own. Mètohoué Vincent covers the household expenses together with his wife. In order to meet these different expenses, he has sold kitchen utensils (cooking pots, ladles etc.) for the last eleven years or so in his region. In a secondary capacity, Mètohoué Vincent sells cereals. This activity allows him to cover the household's living costs. Mètohoué Vincent wishes to strengthen his business; this will allow him to efficiently meet his customer's requirements. For this reason, Mètohoué Vincent is requesting his first loan from ALIDé.
