Aïdote Group's story

The AÏDOTE group is made up of three people who all live in the same neighborhood. The group's leader, Jocelyne Fidélia, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 39 years old and lives in Benin. Jocelyne Fidélia left school at the secondary level. She is married to a man named Jean. The couple has three children, all of whom go to school and are in their care. Jocelyne Fidélia lives with her husband and children. Together, the couple take care of the household's various needs.

To meet her family's expenses, for the last fifteen years Jocelyne Fidélia has been selling kitchen wares (bowls, basins) and fabric in her neighborhood. She obtains her supplies in Benin, and sometimes in Lomé. In order to satisfy her customers and increase turnover and revenue, Jocelyne Fidélia and the other AÏDOTE members are asking ALIDé for a fourth loan. The three previous loans were fully repaid.

In this group: Jocelyne Fidélia, Catherine, Yvette
