Agbara Oluwa Okpo Group's story

The AGBARA OLUWA OKPO group consists of four people who live in the same locality.

The group's representative, Akisokpè Elidja (raising his hand in the photo), is 39 years old. He is married to a retailer named Marcelline and has seven children in his care, three of whom are his own children. Some of the children attend school. The couple jointly takes care of the family's various expenses.

Akisokpè Elidja left school at the secondary level and learned the trade of welding. In order to cover his various expenses, he has been working as a welder for the past seventeen years, which enables him to take good care of his family's needs. He buys his supplies in Nigeria.

In order to better meet the needs of an increasing number of customers, and also to increase his profits, Akisokpè Elidja is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of the AGBARA OLUWA OKPO group. Previous loans have been well repaid.

In this group: Akisokpè Elidja, Alfred, John, Adéwalé Jonace
