Alogo Group's story

The ALOGO group is comprised of three people who live in the same house. The representative of this group is Irene, and she’s the one whose hand is raised in the photo. This is the second time that this group has asked for financial support from ALIDé to expand its business.

Irene is 32 years old and is married to a woodworker named Albert. The couple has three dependent children, some of whom go to school. Irene stopped going to school after elementary school. Irene lives with her husband and her children, and she and her husband take care of the various household responsibilities.

For nearly 3 years now, Irene has been selling condiments out of her home. Irene buys her supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of better satisfying her clients and growing her revenue, Irene and the other members of the ALOGO group are asking for their second loan from ALIDé. Their first loan was repaid.

In this group: Irène , Natacha, Judith
