Mededjigbe Group's story

The MEDEDJIGBE group is composed of three persons who reside in the same neighborhood in Bénin. This is the third time that this group is requesting financial aid from ALIDé, so as to raise the level of their activities. The representative of the group, Laetitia, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Laetitia was born on November 3, 1973 in a town in the south of Bénin. She is married to a printer, Victorin. The couple have three children, all enrolled in school; only one is still under their roof. The family live together and the couple share in supporting the household. Laetitia left school at the secondary level. In order to play an active role in supporting the household, she buys underwear which she resells in a town in Bénin. Laetitia has been in this business for four years. Wishing to satisfy her clientele and grow her turnover and thus her income, Laetitia is requesting, together with the other members of her group MEDEDJIGBE, a third loan.

In this group: S. Laetitia , Anasthasie, Adeline
