A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pigs.


Jérôme's story

Jérôme is 34 years old and lives in Benin. He has a primary school education. He is married to a merchant named Léontine. The couple has three children living in their care, all of whom have received schooling. Two of the children living in their care are their own biological children. Jérôme lives with his wife and children, and he and his wife both cover the household expenses together. In order to cover his family's expenses, Jérôme has been selling pigs from his home for nineteen years now. He stocks up in a town in Benin and in Burkina Faso. Jérôme is seeking a loan from ALIDé for the first time, in the hopes of satisfying his customers and increasing his sales and revenue. The loan will definitely allow him to expand his business and earn more profit.
