Alodoalome 1 Group's story

Alodoalome 1 group is a grouping of eight people who live in the same neighborhood. It is the fourth time that this group has requested a loan from Alidé, in order to increase their business volume and better respond to customer demand. The representative of the group, who is called Codjo Alain, is the one with his hand raised in the photo. Codjo Alain is 45 years old and married to a retailer by the name of Elisabeth. The couple has seven children, all at school and in their care. Codjo Alain did not go to school himself. He sells iron rods and has been doing this for the past eighteen years; this allows him to cover the various family expenses and provide for his own needs. With a view to expanding their business by increasing their stock, so that they can respond better to customer demand, Codjo Alain and the other members of the Alodoalome 1 group are requesting a fourth loan from Alidé. This loan will undoubtedly enable the whole group to increase their turnover and income.

In this group: Codjo Alain, Philibert, Mahounon Roger, Hounsa, Alphonse, Christophe, Euloge, O. Elie
