A loan of $500 helped a member to buy kitchen utensils and jewelry for resale.

Ayiwiwe Group's story

AYIWIWE is a group of three friends. The group’s representative is Florence (whose hand is raised in the photo). Florence is 35 years old and married to a man named Didier. The couple have three dependent children who go to school. Florence lives with her husband and their children. The couple handle together the various household responsibilities.

Florence left school at the primary level. In order to deal with some of her responsibilities, she started selling kitchen utensils and jewelry three years ago through the distribution system. She buys her stock in Benin and in Togo.

Eager to meet her customers’ needs, increase her working capital and strengthen her business, Florence is seeking a first loan from ALIDé together with the other members of AYIWIWE. This credit will help them to better meet customer demand and increase their profits.
