Fifame 1 Group's story

The group FIFAME 1 consists of four members who live in the same neighborhood. This is the group’s third time seeking financial support from ALIDé to bolster their activities.

The representative of the group is Sènalonhan Victorine, seen with a hand raised in the photo. Sènalonhan Victorine is 34 years old and lives in Benin. She abandoned her studies in primary school. She is married to a financier named André, and they have two dependent children who both go to school. Sènalonhan Victorine lives with her husband and their children, and the couple handle together the various household responsibilities.

In order to help provide for the family, Sènalonhan Victorine has been selling canned goods, soaps, and mobile phone recharge cards around her neighborhood for the past seven years. She buys her stock at a market in Benin.

Eager to achieve customer satisfaction and to increase her sales and revenue, Sènalonhan Victorine is seeking a third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of her group. Both previous loans were correctly repaid.

In this group: Sènalonhan Victorine, Esthel Adjoavi D., Lucienne, M. Marie
