Massavo Group's story

MASSAVO is a group of 21 people, who are all friends and live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is Yènidji Orguette (pictured with her hand raised in the photo), and she is 29 years of age and married to a baker called Jérémie. The couple has a child in school, who is under their care.

Yènidji Orguette did not go to school. She lives together with her child and her husband. Together the couple covers the various household expenses. For almost three years Yènidji Orguette has sold wheat flour and fabrics through the distribution system. She gets her supplies from Nigeria.

This is the first time that Yènidji Orguette and the other members of the MASSAVO group have requested the financial support of ALIDé. They have done so to increase their working capital and strengthen their business, as well as to better meet their customers’ needs.

In this group: Yènidji Orguette, Monique, Josephine, Pauline, Fifamè Djoka Madeleine, Antoinette, T. Pelagie, Nicole, Constance, Antoinette, Célestine, Victoire, Léa, Géradine, Mahussi Cécile, Rosette, Dossi Alaba, Amouda, Madeleine, Fatima, Georgette
