Henriette's story

Henriette, age 52, is a widow who lives in Benin. She never attended school. She has no children or dependents.

She makes a living processing palm nuts, an activity she has been practicing for 30 years.

To achieve customer satisfaction and to boost her sales and revenue, she is seeking a first loan from ALIDé. She will use this credit to stock up on palm nuts and palm wine. This will help her to meet customer demand and to bolster her activity, which will increase her profits.
