Ayidekon Houeto 2 Group's story

AYIDEKON HOUETO 2 is a group composed on 14 women. The President of the group (the woman with her finger raised in the photograph) is Aline. The members of the group are all from the same neighborhood within the city of Abomey Calavi. With the goal to increase their working capital, the group is requesting a loan from Alidé for the first time.

Born on October 20, 1973 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Bénin, Aline has lived for eight years in Abomey Calavi. Aline is married to an office worked named Eugène and has three children who are in school. Aline is responsible along with her husband for all the expenses of the household. She dropped out of high-school and then studied sewing, which she has continued for 14 years and enables her to help with the family expenses. Aline also sells a variety of dry goods from her workshop. She buys her products in Dantokpa, an international market in Bénin. This first loan will certainly enable Aline and the group to increase their business, and grow their clientele and revenues.

In this group: Modukpè Alice, Assiba Yvette, Alougba Angèle, Philomène, Aline Baï, Philomène, Mireille Ablawa, Victorine, Véronique, Sylvie, Bouki Natacha, Sabine, Marie Virginie, Houéfa
