Nounassou Anatole's story

Nounassou Anatole is 57 years old and lives in Benin. He has had little schooling. He is married to Akpoton, a merchant. The couple have six children, of whom five remain in their care, but all six have education. Nounassou Anatole lives together with his wife and his children and, along with his wife, jointly ensures that household expenses are covered.

To make sure that the diverse family expenses are met, Nounassou Anatole has been raising poultry for about fifteen years. Parallel to this business, he sells corn, cassava flour, charcoal, and firewood. He gets his supplies from regions in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy his customers and to increase his sales and his revenues, Nounassou Anatole is requesting a loan from ALIDé for a third time. This loan will surely enable him to boost his business and to make more profit. The previous loans have indeed been paid back.
