Sedjrogande Group's story

SEDJROGANDE is a group consisting of three people who live in the same neighborhood of Benin. This is the fourth time that this group has requested a loan from ALIDE in order to raise the standard of their business and to better respond to the demands of their customers. The representative of the group, named Yvette Akouavi, is the one with the raised hand in the photo. Yvette Akouavi is 36 years old and married to a chauffeur named Theophile. The couple have two children, both in school and under their care. Yvette dropped out of secondary school. For six years, Yvette Akouavi has been in the business of selling sundries (rice, vegetable oil, wood charcoal) in her neighborhood. Yvette Akouavi sources her products in a city in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction and with the goal of increasing her inventory of products, Yvette Akouavi and the other members of the SEDJROGANDE group are asking for a fourth loan from ALIDE. This loan will certainly enable the whole group to increase their revenues and their income.
