Ayimevo 1 Group's story

The Ayimevo 1 group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of this group, whose name is Christine, is the lady who has her hand raised in the photo. It is the third time that this group has requested financial aid from Alidé with a view to increasing their business volume.

Christine is 51 years old and a widow. She has two children who have both been to school but one remains in her care. She lives with her one dependant child. Christine did not go to school. In order to provide for her own needs and her child's, she has been selling rice in her neighborhood for the past ten years or so. With the aim of strengthening her activity and better responding to customer demand, Christine wants to increase her stock. In order to do this, she and the other members of the Ayimevo 1 group are requesting a third loan from Alidé. The first two loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Christine , Azon H., Alice
