Fifa Group's story

The "Fifa" group comprises three people who live in the same area. The group leader, named Pauline, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. Pauline is 38 years old. She had very little schooling and is married to a man named Hervé. The couple have three children, all of whom attend school and are in their parents' care. The children live together with their parents. The couple provide for the family together. In order to contribute to the various household expenses, Pauline sells various items (beans, pasta, and canned goods) at her store. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin and has run this business for seven years. With the goal of raising the level of their business and increasing their sales and income, Pauline and her group are seeking a second loan with ALIDÉ. The first loan was repaid properly.

In this group: Pauline , Justine, Eugénie
