Oluwafemi Group's story

The OLUWAFEMI group consists of three women who live in the same neighborhood and have complementary activities. The group's representative, Aurore, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. It is the fourth time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to increase its level of activity.

Aurore is 40 years old and she is married to a man named Janvier. Aurore and Janvier have four children, all in school and their dependents. Aurore never went to school. She lives with her husband and children and takes care of the various household expenses with her husband.

Aurore has been selling shoes and cosmetic products, from her home, for close to eight years. She buys her goods at a market in Benin.

Eager to better meet her customers' needs and in order to increase her income, Aurore is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the OLUWAFEMI group.

In this group: Aurore, Naïmatou, Emilienne Jésuwamè
