Affossogbe Group's story

The group AFFOSSOGBE consists of fifteen people who live in the same neighborhood and practice income-generating activities. The group’s representative is Veronique, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Veronique is 37 years old and lives in Benin. She never went to school. She is married to a farmer named Noel, and they have four dependent children who all go to school. Veronique lives with her husband and children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together.

To help support her family, Veronique started selling homemade palm oil locally about ten years ago. As a sideline, she also sells a maize-based paste called akassa. She buys her supplies locally.

To meet customer demand and to increase her sales and revenue, Veronique is seeking a loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group AFFOSSOGBE.

In this group: Véronique, Bernadette, Elise, Philomène, Victoire, Béatrice, Justine, Emilienne, Véronique, Yvette, Colette, Wétonou, Gisèle, Madeleine, Martine
