Tolohoun Lache Group's story

The Tolohoun Lache group consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the fourth time that this group is requesting financial aid from ALIDé, in order to elevate the level of their business.

The representative of the group, by the name of Sidikatou, is the one who has her hand raised in the photo. Sidikatou is 42 years old and lives in Bénin. Sidikatou stopped school at the primary level. Sidikatou is married to a certain Imourou. The couple has three dependent children who are all in school. Sidikatou lives together with her husband and her children. The couple shares the household responsibilities.

In order to take care of the diverse household responsibilities, Sidikatou has been selling onions and hot peppers in a market of Bénin for seven years. Sidikatou gets her supplies in a market of Bénin.

In seeking to satisfy her customers and to grow her turnover and her income, Sidikatou is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the Tolohoun Lache group. The first three loans were well repaid.

In this group: Sidikatou, Moutiatou, Moulikatou
