Pierrette's Group's story

Pierrette and Alice are sisters, and together they live with Leontine in the Adogleta district of Cotonou, Benin's economic center. This is their fifth loan through ALIDE following successful repayments in the past.

Pierrette was born in 1955 in Porto-Novo, the administrative capital. She has lived in her current neighborhood for 12 years, all the while running her stall from her home, where she sells traditional meals. This loan will allow Pierrette to purchase the raw ingredients necessary to make these meals to sell from her stall.

Her ambition is to evolve her business and increase her personal savings. She believes she has the qualities necessary to greatly increase her customer base.
