Adoubi Philomène's story

48-year-old Adoubi Philomène is married to Emmanuel. The couple has three children, all in school and who are still their dependents. Apart from their own children, the couple has another child under her care. Adoubi Philomène and her husband manage jointly all the different family expenses, and she lives with her ​​husband and children. As she's had little education, Adoubi Philomène has been running a business selling baby products in one of Benin's markets over the past eight years. She buys her supplies in one of Benin's cities and in Lomé, Togo. This is the second time Adoubi Philomène has requested funding from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of her business and better meet customer demands. The previous loan was repaid in full.
