Sedjro Djidje Tokpota Group's story

The group SEDJRO DJIDJE TOKPOTA is comprised of three persons who live in the same district. The group's representative, named Esther, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. This is he sixth time this group has requested financial support from ALIDé for boosting their business.

Esther is 34 years old and married to a man named Bonaventure. They have two children, both in school, and in their care. And she lives together with her children and husband.

Esther halted her studies in secondary school. For about eight years she has had a business selling charcoal in her region. This enables her to meet the needs of her childen, as well as her own, without much difficulty.

Concerned about bolstering her business further and responding to customer demands, Esther would like to increase her stock of goods. To do so, she and the other members of the group SEDJRO DJIDJE TOKPOTA are requesting a sixth loan from ALIDé. The preceding loans have indeed been repaid.

In this group: Esther, Adélaïde, Albertine Mansan
