Dagbemabou Group's story

The Dagbemabou group is made up of three people who live in the same district of Benin. It is the sixth time that this group has requested financial aid from Alidé, with a view to increasing their business volume. The representative of the group, whose name is Ahlonsou, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. She is 58 years old and married to a man called Ingrid. Ahlonsou attended school very little. The couple has six children, some of whom go to school; all the children are in their parents' care. Ahlonsou and her husband cover the various family expenses between them. The children live with their parents. Ahlonsou has been selling palm oil in a Benin market for almost 12 years. At the same time, she also goes fishing in a Benin lake. She gets her provisions in a region of Benin. With a view to satisfying customer demand and increasing her income, Ahlonsou is requesting, together with the other members of the Dagbemabou group, a sixth loan from Alidé. The first five loans were repaid in full.

In this group: Ahlonsou, Sonagnon Justine, Bahi Ingrid
