A loan of $400 helped to cultivate black-eyed peas, corn and okra.

Cécile's story

Cécile is 42 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to a farmer called Théophile. Cécile did not go to school. The couple have 4 dependent children, some of whom attend school. Cécile lives together with her husband and children. The couple both take care of the household's expenses. Cécile has been farming for 10 years, so that she can cover the family's various expenses.

In order to increase her production, and with a view to better satisfying her customer's needs, Cécile would like to buy the agricultural inputs needed to cultivate black-eyed peas, corn and okra, at a market in Benin. This is the third loan that she is requesting from ALIDé. The previous loans have been properly repaid.
