Ayidote Group's story

AYIDOTE is a group composed of five persons whose members live in the same district in Benin. The group's representative is Bofè Rose (with her hand raised in the photo). She is 43 years old and married to a man named Isaac. They have three children, all in school. Bofè Rose and her husband live together with their three children and jointly ensure that their different expenses are covered.

Bofè Rose dropped out of middle school. For fifteen years, she has been running a business selling yoghurt and fruit juices out of her home. This business generates the revenues helping her to do her part in meeting family expenses. She gets her supplies in Benin.

With the goal of improving her level of business by strengthening it, as well as satisfying customer demand, Bofè Rose and the other members of the group AYIDOTE would like to obtain a second loan.

In this group: Bofè Rose, Tété Claire, Florentine, Eugenie, Blandine Senoumatin
