A loan of $750 helped a member to purchase clothes for resale.


Fifa Group's story

The Fifa group of three entrepreneurs are all friends who have stalls in the same market in Calavi, a district on the outskirts of Cotonou, Benin's largest city. This is their third loan with ALIDE following successful past repayments.

Agnes (with her hand raised in the photo) was born in 1968 in Cotonou. She moved to her current location seven years ago, and now lives with her husband Barnabé and their children, all of whom are in school.

For the past 10 years Agnes has run a stall selling clothes in the Akassato market. This loan will enable her to purchase clothes in bulk from Tokpa, Benin's largest market in the heart of Cotonou. She claims to be determined in her approach to business, and always seeks to satisfy her customers.

In this group: Agnes, Blanche, Felicienne
