Suzanne's story

Suzanne is 42 years old and lives in Benin. She never attended school. She is married to a man named Pascal, with whom she has four children, one of whom is still under their care. In order to take care of her family's needs, Suzanne has been working for the past 20 years as a food vendor (rice with sauce) and diverse other products from a school in Benin. She stocks up in her region. In order to satisfy the demands of her customers and to increase her sales and profits, Suzanne is asking for her fifth loan from Alidé. This loan will allow her to increase her sales activity and achieve more profits. The first four loans were repaid in a timely manner.
