A loan of $1,375 helped to buy palm nuts and palm oil.

Gouton's story

Gouton is 52 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to a seller named Eugénie with whom he has six children. Some of the couple's children are in school and three are still in their care. Gouton and Eugénie live with their children and jointly take care of the various needs of the household.

To provide for his family, Gouton has been working as a farmer in his region for the past thirty years or so. In addition to his farming business, he also processes palm nuts and palm oil, locally. He buys his supplies in his region.

In order to increase his turnover and income, Gouton would like to buy some goods to meet his customers' demand. To do so, he is requesting a fourth loan from Alidé. This loan will surely help him to increase the level of his activity and to make more profits. His previous loans have been duly repaid.
