Bidossessi Group's story

Bidossessi is a group of 9 people whose members live in the same district. The group's representative, Angèle Denise (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 59 years old. She did not get much schooling. She is a widow and mother of 6 children, all of whom are educated and independent. Angèle Denise lives alone and takes care of her own needs; she has been selling drinks from her home for 17 years. She gets her supplies from a depot in Benin.

In order to raise their level of business activity, Angèle Denise and the other members of the Bidossessi group are requesting a 3rd loan from ALIDé together. This loan will enable them to strengthen their business activities and to better respond to customer demand. The first 2 loans have been properly repaid.

In this group: Angèle Denise, Philomène, Adjoua, Philomène, Pauline, Damienne, Natacha Justine Minssè, Yvette, Rosaline Dolou
