A loan of $925 helped a member to buy "pagne" cloth.

Sena 1 Group's story

"SENA 1" is a group composed of three persons whose members are friends residing in the same district. The president (the one with her hand raised in the photo) is Edwige Lutiana. With the goal of increasing their working capital, the group members are requesting a loan from the third time from ALIDé.

Edwige Lutiana is 39 years old and married to a mechanic by the name of Taofic. They have two children to support. Both of the children are in school. She lives together with her children and husband and ensures along with her husband that household expenses are covered.

To support herself and her children, Edwige Lutiana has been selling cloth for six years via the distribution system. She gets her supplies from a city in Benin. This loan will surely enable her and her group "SENA 1" to boost their business and increase their customer base and their revenues.

The loans previously received were indeed paid back.

In this group: Edwige Lutiana, Akouavi Scholastique Laure, Kafilath Adouni
