Oluwatobi Group's story

OLUWATOBI is a group made up of five people who are friends and live in the same neighborhood. Djoba Zinhoué, the group's representative, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. In order to increase its working capital, the group is requesting its fourth loan from ALIDé.

Djoba Zinhoué is 33 years old and married to a man named Nicaise. The couple has three children, all in school and all their dependents. Djoba Zinhoué has never attended school.

Djoba Zinhoué lives with her husband and children and takes care of the various household expenses with her husband. In order to provide for herself and her family, she has been selling plates and, to a lesser extent, snacks, for almost eight years. She stocks up at a market in Benin and sells door-to-door.

This fourth loan will help Djoba Zinhoué and the other members of the OLUWATOBI group to boost their level of activity, increase their customer base and their income. The three loans previously granted to them have been well repaid.

In this group: Djoba Zinhoué, Marie, Sedo Rose, Azimatou Amake, Enagbo Blandine
