Ama-Dou Group's story

The AMA-DOU group is formed of three people who come from the same village. Abibatou is the representative of this group, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. This is the sixth time that this group has requested the financial support of Alidé to expand their activity. Abibatou is 41 years of age and married to Issifou. The couple has three children, all at school, for whom they are responsible. Abibatou did not go to school, and lives with her husband and children. Both she and her husband are responsible for the household expenses. For almost ten years Abibatou has sold "côme" (a type of corn mash) with fish sauce in a park in Benin, and she gets her supplies from a market in the city. To increase customer satisfaction and ensure greater income, Abibatou has requested a sixth loan from Alidé along with the other members of the AMA-DOU group.

In this group: Abibatou, Fousséïna, Saoudath
