Fifa Christon Group's story

The group FIFA CHRISTON is made up of 25 persons who all live in the same district in Bénin. The representative of this group, Amelin Alphonsine, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Amelin Alphonsine is 55 and married to a customs agent named Valère. The couple have four children, all living under their roof.

Amelin Alphonsine did not go to school. For about 20 years, she has been selling kitchen utensils through the distribution system, allowing her to help her husband support their family. Amelin Alphonsine buys her products in Bénin and in Togo. It's the second time that she and the other members of the group called FIFA CHRISTON are requesting a loan from ALIDé. This loan will permit them to expand their businesses so as to be better able to respond to the needs of their clientele. The first loan was correctly reimbursed.

In this group: Mawulawè Hélène, Amelin Alphonsine, Adjouavi Philomène, Françoise, Conforte Affiavi, Mireille, Marie, Mariétou, Georgette, Léontine, Adjoua, Bossèdé Philomène, Assiba Charlotte Carine, Claudine, Augustine, Véronique, Agathe, Bernadette Jesugo, Lucienne, Elise Fifame, Victoire, Sènami Alice, Hounsikpê, Odile Clotilde, Marguerite
