A loan of $1,175 helped to buy cameras.


Godonou Rufin's story

Godonou Rufin is 45 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to a merchant named Gertrude, and the couple have four dependent children. Godonou Rufin lives with his wife and children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together.

To that end, Godonou Rufin started working as a photographer in his region some 20 years ago. He buys his cameras locally.

To bolster his sales and revenue, Godonou Rufin wishes to purchase the additional cameras needed to meet customer demand. To do so, he is seeking financial assistance from ALIDé for the third time. This credit will help him to bolster his activity and to increase his profits. Past loans were repaid without incident.
