Djidjoho Jules's story

Djidjoho Jules is 38 years old and lives in Benin. He attended secondary school. He is married to a merchant named Mireille, and the couple have four dependent children, some of whom go to school. In addition to their own, they have another child in their care. Djidjoho Jules lives with his wife and children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together.

Djidjoho Jules is a decorator by trade. He has been practicing this activity from his home for about twenty years, and the work brings in substantial income. His customer base is growing steadily.

To upgrade his activity and become more competitive in the market, Djidjoho Jules wishes to purchase new supplies, which he normally buys in a city of Benin and in Nigeria.

Eager to achieve customer satisfaction and to increase his sales and revenue, Djidjoho Jules is seeking financial assistance from ALIDé for the third time. Both past loans were repaid without incident.
