Nicolas's story

Nicolas is 40 years old and is married to Véronica, a trader. The couple have 7 children, some of whom attend school. As well as these children, the couple are also responsible for one more child. Nicolas did not go to school. He lives together with his children and wife. The couple take care of the various household responsibilities together.

Nicolas has been farming and breeding pigs for 15 years. He performs his work with passion, which enables him to meet his needs and those of his children. Nicolas gets his supplies in an area of Benin. In order to satisfy his customers and with a view to increasing his production, Nicolas would like to buy the agricultural inputs needed to cultivate corn, peppers and okra. This is the 6th time that Nicolas is requesting a 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 correctly repaid.
