Pierre's story

Pierre, who is 44 years old, is married to a hairdresser called Pascaline. Pierre attended school up until secondary level. The couple has four children, all at school and in their care. Pierre lives with his wife and children, and the couple together provides for the various household needs. In order to do this, Pierre has been selling drinks in his area for around six years. As a secondary activity he also operates a catering service. This enables him to meet his family's various needs without any great difficulty. Pierre gets his supplies in a Benin town. With a view to boosting his business, he is requesting a second loan from Alidé. The previous loan was repaid in full.
