Métoche's story

Métoche is 44 years old and married to Agboïnou. She is the mother of 4 children, all of whom are attending school and dependent on the couple. As well as their own children, the couple are also responsible for 3 other children. Métoche did not go to school. She lives together with her husband and children and, together with her husband, takes care of the household's various needs.

In order to be able to contribute to those different needs, Métoche has been selling palm oil, food and drinks in her district for 20 years. This business allows her to meet her needs without too much difficulty. She gets her supplies in her area. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, and to increase her turnover and revenue, Métoche is requesting a loan from ALIDé for the 5th time. This loan will enable her to increase her level of business, her customer numbers and her revenue. The first 4 loan have been correctly repaid.
