Alexandre Vihanou's story

Married to a hairdresser by the name of Rosaline, Alexandre Vihanou is 36 years old. The couple has four children, all of them in school. Alexandre Vihanou and his wife live together with their children and, together, see to the various household expenses. Alexandre Vihanou did not receive much education. He has been working as a miller in a town in Benin for nearly a decade. He undertakes his business with passion, which allows him to meet his needs and those of his children. He gets his supplies from within the region. With the goal of meeting customer demand, Alexandre Vihanou is seeking a fifth loan. This loan will allow him to better respond to his customers' needs and to make more of a profit. The preceding loans received have been properly repaid.
