Afepeb 2 Group's story

AFEPEB 2 is a group of two people who live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is called Blandine Léonie (pictured with her hand raised in the photo), and is a 60-year-old widow. She is a mother of four children, some of whom are at school. Two of her children remain under her care.

Blandine Léonie lives with her children, and is solely responsible for ensuring that her various needs and those of her children are met. For almost 16 years she has sold fabrics and staple foods through the distribution system and in a market located in Benin. Blandine Léonie gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

This is the third time that Blandine Léonie and the second member of the AFEPEB 2 group have requested financial support from ALIDé. They have done so to increase their working capital and better meet the needs of their customers. The loans they received in the past have been successfully repaid.

In this group: Blandine Léonie, Bernadette
