Bertin's story

Bertin is 34 years old and is married to Virginie. The couple have 9 dependent children, some of whom go to school. Bertin did not go to school. He lives together with his children and wife. The couple both take care of the household's various needs. Bertin has been a farmer for 20 years. It is a job he performs with passion, which enables him to meet his needs and those of his children.

Bertin gets his agricultural inputs in a town in Benin. In order to increase his production and his level of business, he is requesting a 5th loan from ALIDé. This loan will enable him to better respond to his customer demand and to make more profits. The previous loans have been properly repaid.
