Mathias's story

Mathias is 33 years of age and is married to a seamstress named Babine. The couple has two children, one at school and one under their care. Mathias lives with his family and children, and together the couple provides for their household.

Mathias did not go to school, but learned to be a photographer, a business he has run from his workshop for 22 years. In addition to this business, he also buys film, frames, cassettes and CDs, which he resells in his workshop. In order to meet customer demand, he has requested financial support from Alidé for the fourth time. All of Mathias' prior loans were successfully repaid.
