A loan of $300 helped to purchase jewelry and shoes.


Chantal Sènami's story

Chantal Sènami is 32 years old and lives in Bénin. She is married to a man named Mathieu. They have three children, and they all attend school. Chantal Sènami lives at home together with her husband and children, and meets the household expenses along with her husband.
In order to cover the various costs, she has worked as a mobile hairdresser for the last ten years or so. Alongside this business, she also sells jewelry and shoes. She buys her stock in selected towns in Bénin.
In order to meet her customers demand and to grow her income and her profit, she is seeking a loan from ALIDé for the third time. This loan will undoubtedly help her to grow her business and to increase her profits. The previous loans have both been fully repaid.
