Sévèho Rémi's story

Sévèho Rémi is 36 years old and lives in Benin. He attended school up until primary level. He is married to Béatrice, who is a merchant. The couple has three children to support, all of whom attend school. Two of the children are their own. Sévèho Rémi lives with his wife and children and covers the various household costs together with his wife. In order to cover their expenses, Sévèho Rémi has been carrying out a sewing business in his workshop for the past 20 years. He gets his supplies in a market in Benin. With a view to satisfying customer demand and to build up his sewing equipment as well as his income, he is requesting a third loan from Alidé. This will undoubtedly enable him to increase his business volume and make more money. The previous loans were repaid in full.
