Alodo Group's story

The group ALODO comprises two persons who live in the same district. The group's representative, Kuassialé Céline, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 47 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to an electrician named Henri. They have four children, some of whom are in school. Three of the children are still in their care. Kuassialé Céline lives with her children and husband. The family expenses are covered by both her and her husband.

To support her family, Kuassialé Céline purchases rice, corn, and condiments from a market in Benin and resells them door to door but also via the distribution system.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Kuassialé Céline, along with the other members of the group ALODO, is requesting a third loan. The first two loans were indeed repaid.

In this group: Kuassialé Céline, Thérèse Lokossi
