A loan of $875 helped to buy a maize mill.


Gilbert Gbenassou's story

Gilbert Gbenassou, age 47, lives in Benin and is married to a merchant named Beatrice. He is the father of three children, some of whom have received schooling. He lives with his wife and children, and the couple provide together for the children’s various needs.

In order to support the household, Gilbert Gbenassou has been working as a miller from his home for the past fifteen years. He would like to upgrade his equipment by acquiring a maize mill.

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