Yehime Group's story

YEHIME Group is made up of 26 persons who all live in the same neighborhood. This is the second time that the members of the group are seeking financial support from Kiva's partner, ALIDé, in order to bolster their businesses and better meet customer demand.

The group's representative, named Lucienne, is the one raising her hand in the photograph. She's 38 years old, and married to one Théodore. The couple have four school-attending children they have to support, and cover the various family expenses together.

To provide for her various needs and help with the family expenses, Lucienne sells smoked fish as an itinerant vendor. She gets her supplies in Benin. For the second time, Lucienne and the other members of the group are seeking a loan from ALIDé in order to bolster their businesses.

In this group: Lokossi Elise, Afiavi Antoinette, Adjoua, Véronique, Angèle, Sossi Jeanne, Lucienne, Elyse, Aimée, Adjoua, Dénise, Clarisse, Chantal, Angèle Kouessiba, Honorine, Valérie, Madelaine, Madeleine, Zénabou, Crépine, Mariette Christelle, Pélagie, Romaine, Lucienne, Francisca, Akouassi
