Salomon's story

Salomon is 33 years old; he lives in Benin and only attended school for a short period. He is married to a seamstress named Jacqueline. Salomon and Jacqueline have five children, all in school and their dependents. In addition to their children, the couple has another child in its care. Salomon lives with his wife and children and takes care of the various household expenses with his wife.

Salomon is trained as an auto-painter; he has been working in this field for the past two years, in his region. This professional activity brings him a rather good income.

Salomon has an increasing number of customers. In order to further improve his business and to become more competitive on the market, he would like to purchase some new equipment. He buys his materials in a town in Benin and in Nigeria.

In order to meet his customers' needs and to increase his turnover and income, Salomon is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé for the second time.

His previous loan was duly repaid.
