Yehime 3 Group's story

YEHIME 3 is a group composed of 11 people who all live in the same neighborhood. The group representative, Virginie, is the one raising her hand on the picture. In order to strenghten their business and better meet the needs of their customers, this group is seeking financial support from ALIDÉ for the first time. Virginie never went to school. She is 50 ans and is married to a man named Yaovi. They have five children. Some of them go to school. Two are still their dependents. Virginie and her husband live with their dependent children. They both take care of the family financially. In order to contribute to family-related expenses, Virginie has been selling rice and condiments from home for 15 years. She buys those items in a market in Benin. In order to strengthen their business and better meet the needs of their customers, Virginie and the other members of YEHIME 3 are applying for this first loan from ALIDÉ. Their ambition is to increase their business.
