Gabin Odjoulayé's story

Gabin Odjoulayé is 32 years old and lives in Benin. He is married to Augustine, a seller, with whom he has two children. The children do not go to school and they are both in the couple's care. In addition to their own children, Gabin Odjoulayé and Augustine have another child in their care. They live with their children and jointly take care of the needs of the household. To provide for his family, Gabin Odjoulayé has been working as a construction electrician, in his region, for the past seven years. In addition to this activity, he also sells electric supplies, buying his goods in Nigeria. In order to meet his customers' demand, and to boost his income, he is requesting a loan from ALIDé, for the third time. This loan will surely help him to raise his level of activity and to make more profits. His previous loans were duly repaid.
