Fiffawa Group's story

The FIFFAWA group has 17 members who all live in the same neighborhood, in Benin. The group's representative is called Adjouavi Edith Cyprienne and she can be seen raising her hand in the photo. Adjouavi Edith Cyprienne is 46 years old and married to Didier. The couple have three children who have all attended school and two of them are still in their care. Adjouavi Edith Cyprienne stopped attending school at high school level. She has been selling clothing and charcoal through a distribution system for three years. This enables her to help her husband in covering their family's expenses. Adjouavi Edith Cyprienne buys her products in Benin and Togo. This is the second time that she and the other members of the FIFFAWA group have requested a loan from ALIDé. The loan will allow them to strengthen their businesses so that they can better respond to their customer demand. Their first loan was repaid correctly.
