Adjeniya Group's story

The Adjeniya group is composed of three individuals living in the same area in Sèkandji, in the community of Sèmè-Podji. This is the first time that the group is seeking financing from ALIDé, in order to expand their activities. The group’s representative, by the name of Rafiatou, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Rafiatou was born on June 11, 1966 in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin, and is married to Karim, a vendor. They have four children, three of whom are still in the couple’s care. Some children are in school. Rafiatou and her husband jointly provide for the family needs. Rafiatou has been living in Sèkandji with her husband and children for almost six years. In order to support herself and improve her quality of life, Rafiatou has been working for about seven years as a vendor of hardware supplies. She stocks up in Nigeria, a country neighboring Benin. With the goal of meeting her customers’ expectations and increasing her working capital and income, Rafiatou, together with her group, is seeking her first loan.
