Olohountobi Group's story

The Olohountobi group is formed of five people who all live in the same neighborhood. Mariama is the group representative, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. This is the second time that this group has requested financial support from Alidé to expand their activity. Mariama is 34 years of age and is married to Saïd, with whom she has four children, all of whom are at school and for whom the couple is responsible. Mariama did not attend school, and for the past ten years she has worked as an itinerant vendor selling jewelry. Mariama gets her supplies from Nigeria. To increase her product stock and better meet the needs of her customers, she decided to apply for a second loan from Alidé with the rest of the members of the Olohountobi group. Their first loan was repaid successfully.

In this group: Mariama, Angèle A., Aminatou Abossèdé, Georgette, Elisabeth
