A loan of $650 helped a member to buy rice, maize, and cassava flour for resale.


Sena2 Group's story

The community group SENA2 consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. They are seeking financial support from ALIDé for the second time to bolster their activities.

The representative of the group is Aniouvi Celine, whose hand is raised in the photo. Aniouvi Celine is 32 years old and lives in Benin. She is a widow with four dependent children who all attend school. For the past ten years, Aniouvi Celine has been selling foodstuffs (rice, maize, cassava flour) in her neighborhood to support herself and her children. She buys her stock at a market in Benin.

In order to meet the needs of her customers and further strengthen her business, Aniouvi Celine is seeking a second loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of SENA2. The first loan was repaid without incident.

In this group: Aniouvi Céline, Colette, Fernade
