Médéssè François's story

Médéssè Francis is married to Justine. The couple has four children, some of whom attend school and all are their dependents. In addition to their children, the couple has another child under their care. Médéssè François lives with his wife and children. The couple manages jointly the various family expenses. Médéssè Francis did not attend school, but learned mechanics. To better meet the needs of his customers, he sells spare parts and lubricants in his workshop. He has been doing this for sixteen years, which allows him to provide for his family. In order to meet customer demand, Médéssè François is requesting financial support from ALIDé for the second time. The previous credit loan has been fully repaid.
