Élie is 27 years old and lives in Benin. He only attended school for a short period of time. He is married to Justine, a hairdresser, with whom he has one child. Élie lives with his wife and his child and takes care of the household expenses with his wife.

In order to cover the various family expenses, Élie has been working as a decorator for about 10 years, in his own region. Additionally, he sells gravel. He stocks up in cities in Benin.

In order to satisfy the needs of his customers and to increase his turnover and income, he is requesting a second loan from ALIDé. This loan will surely help him to boost his level of activity and to increase his profits. His previous loan has been duly repaid.
