Achirobo 4 Group's story

The ACHIROBO 4 group is made up of three people who live in the same area, and who belong to the same cooperative banking group. The representative of this group, by the name of Élisabeth, has her hand raised in the photo.
Élisabeth is 40 years old and lives in Bénin. She did not go to school. She is married to a driver named François. They have two children, both in school and living at home. Élisabeth lives with her children. The household expenses are shared between Élisabeth and her husband.
In order to meet the couple's needs, Élisabeth buys fabrics and clothing in a town in Bénin, and resells them on a mobile basis. With the goal of meeting the needs of her customers and in order to grow her turnover, Élisabeth is seeking - together with the other members of the ACHIROBO 4 group, a first loan with ALIDé.

In this group: Élisabeth , Justine, Hortense
