Raliatou's story

Born in 1976 in Banigbé in Benin, Ms. S. Raliatou is married to Mr. TOSSOU Germain.  The couple have two children, who are both in school.  She settled five years ago in PK10, in the community of Sèmè-Podji, where she lives with her husband and children.  She fully participates in meeting their various family expenses. 

Raliatou did not attend school.  Eight years ago, she started selling cloth and shoes door-to-door.  This business generates the revenues for helping her to cope with multiple expenses.  She gets her supplies at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. 

This is the second time that Raliatou is requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to bolster her capital and to raise up her level of business.
