A loan of $800 helped to grow chili peppers, tomatoes, and black-eyed peas.


Pascal's story

Pascal is 56 years old and married to Yvette, a merchant. The couple have nine children, not all in school. In addition to these children, the couple have two others to support. Pascal and his wife live in the same house with their children. He did not attend school. Along with his work as a farmer, Pascal has been raising pigs for about thirty years in order to meet his needs and to ensure that the diverse family expenses are covered.

With the goal of increasing his crops, Pascal would like to purchase some inputs to grow chili peppers, tomatoes, and black-eyed peas. He gets his supplies from a city in Benin. This is the sixth time that Pascal has requested a loan from ALIDé. The previous loans were indeed paid back.
