Maurice Narcisse's story

Maurice Narcisse is 43 years old and lives in Benin. He dropped out of college. He is married to a woman named Sébastienne. The couple have five children to support. Four of the children are their own, some of whom are in school. Maurice Narcisse lives together with his children and wife. The couple jointly ensure that the diverse household expenses are covered.

To cope with the diverse household needs, Maurice Narcisse has been selling grains (corn, cassava flour, etc.) out of his home for four years. He gets his supplies in his region. Thanks to the revenues this business generates, he helps with the different household expenses.

To satisfy the needs of his burgeoning customer base, Maurice Narcisse is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé. The loans received previously by him were indeed paid back.
