Doudedji 1 Group's story

The DOUDEDJI 1 Group is made up of three people who live in the same neighbourhood. The representative of the group, Mariam, is the one with the raised hand in the photo. This is the third time that this group has sought financial support from ALIDé with the goal of raising their standard of business.

Mariam is 35 years old and married to a man named Pascal. The couple has two children, both of whom are in school and their dependents. Mariam lives together with her husband and children, and along with her husband helps to take care of the various household expenses.

For nearly eight years, Mariam has managed her business selling fabrics through a system of distribution. Mariam stocks up at markets in Benin and Lomé.

In the interest of better customer satisfaction and increasing her profits, Mariam is requesting a loan for the third time, a loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of the DOUDEDJI 1 Group. The two pervious loans were properly repaid.

In this group: Mariam, Amavi, Moulikatou
