Sohoueto 5 Group's story

SOHOUETO 5 is a group of 26 persons whose members live in the same district. The group's representative, Urmine (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 38 years old and married to a gardener named Christophe. They have two children, both in school and in their care.

Urmine did not go to school. She lives together with her children and her husband. The couple jointly ensures that the different family needs are covered.

For nearly seven years, Urmine has been selling cloth and in her district. Secondarily, she sells grains. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

This is the first time Urmine and the other members of the group SOHOUETO 5 have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolstering their working capital and their businesses and to respond better to the demands of their customers.

In this group: Urmine, Vilfane Audace Fleur, Marie, Niko Antoinette, Sonia, Pierrette, Eugénie, Ayaba, Josephine, Justine, Marie, Juliette Félicité, Diane Benedicte, Victoire, Mondoukpè, Annick, Henriette, Hélène, Germaine, Estelle, Agnès, Florence, Denise, Pélagie, Mètogbé Sidonie, Charlotte
