Augustine Ayadjénou's story

Augustine Ayadjénou D. was born in 1967 at Djeffa, in the Sèmè-Podji commune in Bénin. Married to Alexandre MINDENOU, Augustine is the mother of six children, all of whom are in school. In addition to their children, the couple has two other children in their care. Augustine settled in Lokokoukoumè in the Sèmè-Podji commune nearly three years ago, where she lives with her family. She helps her husband to provide for the family’s various expenses. She left school very early and then learned hairdressing. Augustine has been in this business for about fifteen years and runs her business at her home. In addition, she sells hair pieces. She gets her supplies in Cotonou, the economic capital of Bénin. This is the first time that Augustine has requested financial assistance from ALIDé, so that she can buy many hairpieces and make wigs that she will sell.
