Afepeb Group's story

The group AFEPEB comprises twelve persons who all have revenue-generating businesses and who live in the same village. This is the second time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their businesses.

The group's representative, Bérengère Germaine, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 54 years old and is not yet married. Neither does she have any children. So she supports herself alone. To do so, she has a business selling shoes, cloth, and handbags out of her home. She has been in this business for three years and gets her supplies from Lomé, the capital of Togo.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and revenues, Bérengère Germaine, along with the other members of the group AFEPEB, is requesting a second loan from ALIDé

In this group: Sébatou, Vinou Firmine Dêmahi, Folakè Milaine, Mèhou Colette, Houénamon Adèle, Lucienne, Ghislaine Satingo, Chantal, Bérengère Germaine , Rosine Assiba, Béatrice Raphaëla, Yèyinou Valerie
