Doudedji Group's story

The Doudedji group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, named Yenassin Charlotte, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. This is the second time that the group has requested the financial assistance of ALIDé in order to raise their business levels. Yenassin Charlotte is married to a retailer named Boniface. The couple has five children who all are in school and in their care. Yenassin Charlotte and her husband take care of the various needs of their family together. Yenassin Charlotte quit school at the primary level. Yenassin Charlotte began selling haberdashery items from her home a year ago. Yenassin Charlotte buys her products in a market in Benin. This business generates considerable revenues for her, helping her to meet the various needs of those in her care. With the goal of increasing her stock of products and better responding to the needs of her clients, Yenassin Charlotte wants to obtain a second loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of Doudedji. The first credit has been fully reimbursed.
