Sena 2 Group's story

The SENA 2 group consists of six members who get their supplies from the same place and belong to the same savings group. It is the fourth time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to increase its level of activity.

Micheline, age 37 and raising her hand in the photo, is the group's representative. She no longer lives with her husband, but she has five children, three of whom are her dependents. All her children attend school. Micheline herself never went to school. She lives alone with her three children and takes care of expenses by herself. In order to provide for her children's various needs, Micheline has been processing palm nuts, locally, for fifteen years. Thanks to this activity, she is able to meet her needs without much difficulty. She gets her supplies in Benin.

Eager to satisfy her customers, and in order to increase her turnover and income, Micheline is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the SENA 2 group. Previous loans have been well repaid.

In this group: Micheline, Damienne, Homagnissi, Médégnonmi, Rachelle, Célestine
