Sèho Vincent's story

Sèho Vincent is a farmer and married to a merchant by the name of Dorcas. He is 55 years old. The couple have eight children, not all in school. In addition to their children, the couple have three others to support. Sèho Vincent and his wife live together with their children and jointly ensure that the different household expenses are covered.

Sèho Vincent did not attend school. For about forty years, he has been working as a farmer by trade and at the same time has been raising steers. He does his work with passion, and this enables him to meet his needs and those of his children. He gets his supplies from a region in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy his customers, Sèho Vincent wants to purchase some inputs for growing corn, black-eyed peas, and chili peppers. This is the fifth time that he has requested a loan from ALIDé. The previous loans received were indeed repaid.
