Célestin's story

Célestin is 42 years old and lives in Benin. He has had a bit of schooling. Célestin is married to a trader called Odette. The couple have 13 children. Nine of them are their own, and one no longer lives with them.

Célestin has been a farmer for about 30 years, in order to be able to take care of the family's different expenses. He is requesting a loan for the 6th time from ALIDé, with the aim of increasing his level of business activity. This loan will help him to buy the agricultural inputs needed to cultivate black-eyed peas, okra and peppers, so that he can satisfy his customer demand. The first loans have been correctly repaid.
