Arlette lives together with her husband and children and, jointly with her husband, provides for various household needs. In order to support herself, Arlette has been working as a hairdresser for over 10 years. As a secondary activity, Arlette sells hair care supplies and beverages. This business allows her to provide for her needs without great difficulty. Arlette stocks up in Benin and also in Nigeria. With the goal of meeting customer demand and increasing her sales volume and her revenues, Arlette is seeking a second loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow her to expand her business, increasing her customer base and her revenues.
