Sonagnon René's story

Sonagnon René is 38 years old and lives in Benin. He has an elementary school education. He is married to Alice, a hairdresser. The couple have three children to support. Not all of the children are in school, and two of them are their own children. Sonagnon René lives together with his wife and children, and along with his wife, he ensures that the household expenses are covered.

To ensure the diverse family expenses are covered, Sonagnon René has had a business for about ten years styling hair, as well as raising rabbits at his house. Parallel to this work, he is a painter and decorator. He gets his supplies from his region.

Seeking to satisfy his customers and to increase his sales and revenues, Sonagnon René is requesting a loan from ALIDé for a fourth time. This loan will surely enable him to boost his business and make more profit. The previous loans were indeed paid back.
