Julienne lives together with her children and her husband and together she and her husband take care of the different household responsibilities. Julienne sells beverages, palm oil, and assorted products from her home. This allows her to help finance her children's education and their care. She stocks up in a region of Benin. Julienne's customer base continues to grow. In order to satisfy her customers and to increase business and revenue, Julienne is requesting a financing for the third time from ALIDé.
