Jeanne's story

Jeanne, age 44, is married to a man named Nicephore. They have four dependent children who all go to school. Jeanne lives with her husband and their children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together.

Jeanne received minimal schooling. To assist her husband with household expenses, Jeanne has been selling food (rice and sauce dish) as an itinerant vendor for the past ten years. She also sells fabrics. She buys her stock at a market of Benin.

To diversify her activity and better meet customer demand, Jeanne is seeking a 5th loan from ALIDé. All past loans were correctly repaid.
