A loan of $450 helped a member to buy shoes.

Ireti Group's story

IRETI is a group of three people who all live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is called Kpokpogbé Madeleine (pictured with her hand raised in the photo), who is 51 years of age and married to Germain. The couple has three children, some at school and all under their care.

Kpokpogbé Madeleine lives with her children and husband, and together with her husband is responsible for the various household expenses. For almost 12 years she has sold shoes in a market in Benin. She gets her supplies from Togo.

This is the second time that Kpokpogbé Madeleine and the other members of the group have requested the financial support of ALIDé. They have done so to increase their working capital and strengthen their business, and to better respond to their customers’ needs. The first loan they received was successfully repaid.

In this group: Kpokpogbé Madeleine, Juliette, Sabine
