Mahouton Bruno's story

Mahouton Bruno, age 42, is married to a hairdresser named Solange. He received very little formal schooling, but he did train to become a car mechanic and has been practicing this activity locally for 13 years.

The couple have four dependent children who all go to school. In addition to their own, they have another dependent child in their care.

Mahouton Bruno lives with his wife and their children, and the couple provide together for the various needs of their household. To that end, in addition to car repairs, Mahouton Bruno sells spare parts out of his shop. He buys his merchandise at a market in Bénin and also in Nigeria.

To strengthen his activity, Mahouton Bruno is seeking a second loan from ALIDé. The first one was correctly repaid.
