Adjeniya Group's story

The group ADJENIYA comprises three persons who reside in the same district. This is the second time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé for boosting their business. The group's representative, Adjaratou, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 41 years old and married to a mattress maker named Saka. Adjaratou did not attend school. The couple have four children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children. The couple share in the different household expenses.

To help meet the different needs of the family, Adjaratou has been selling cosmetics and kitchen utensils for eight years. On the side, she sells cassava flour out of her home. This work enables her to support herself without much difficulty. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and increase her sales and her revenues, Adjaratou is requesting, along with the other members of the group ADJENIYA, a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was indeed paid back.

In this group: Adjaratou, Denise, Denise
