Sohoueto 3 Group's story

SOHOUETO 3 is a group of 23 persons whose members know one another in the same district. The group's representative, Adjuavi Marie (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 60 years old and married to a man named Philippe. They have four children, all having schooling, of whom one remains in their care.

Adjuavi Marie has had very little schooling. She lives together with her dependent child and her husband. The couple jointly ensures that the different household expenses are covered.

For nearly ten years, Adjuavi Marie has been selling grains (rice, corn, beans, cassava flour, oil) out of her home. She gets her supplies from a region in Benin.

This is the first time Adjuavi Marie and the other members of the group SOHOUETO 3 have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolster their working capital and their businesses and to respond better to the requirements of their customers.

In this group: Adjuavi Marie, Pélagie, Satin Elisée, Julienne, Elody, Virginie, Micaelle, Assiba Joselyne, Anasthasie, Diane, Sabine Ablawa, Damienne, C. Esther, Jeanne, Julienne, Aline, Ourala Cécile, Odile, A. Julienne, Leatitia A. A., Gnanki Pascaline, Alice, Dédé Delphine
