A loan of $875 helped to buy bundles of wood for resale.


Paul Loko's story

Paul Loko, age 57, lives in Benin. He never attended school. He is married to Mahoussi. The couple have seven children who have all received schooling. Two of them are still in the couple’s care. To provide for the family’s needs, Paul Loko has been working as a grain miller from his home for about twenty years. He also sells bundles of wood as a secondary activity. He buys his stock in a region of Benin.

To achieve customer satisfaction, and to increase his sales and revenue, Paul Loko is seeking a fifth loan from ALIDé. This credit will help him to bolster his activity and income, which should result in a boost in profits. All past loans were correctly repaid
