Assogba's story

Assogba is 50 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to Kossi, a seller, with whom he has six children. Some of the couple's children are in school, the others are still in their care. Assogba and his wife live with their children and jointly take care of the various needs of the household.

To provide for his family, Assogba has been working as a farmer in his region, for the past eighteen years. In addition to this activity, he also sells drinks, buying his goods from a town in Benin.

In order to meet his customers' demand and to boost his income, he would like to increase his stock of goods. To do so, he is requesting a loan from ALIDé for the first time. This loan will surely help him to raise the level of his activity and to make more profits.
