Midedji Group's story

The Midedji group is made up of fourteen people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Pierrette, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. To increase their level of business to better meet the demands of their clientele, the group is requesting financial support from Alidé for the second time. Pierrette left school at the secondary level. She is 58 years old and married to a man named Christophe. The couple has five school-aged children under their care, three of whom are their own children. Pierrette and her husband live with their children and together provide for the various needs of their family. To meet their family's various needs, Pierrette has sold various food-production products out of her home for five years. She gets her supplies at a market in Bénin. To strengthen her business and to better satisfy her clientele, Pierrette and the other members of Midedji are requesting a second loan from Alidé. Their ambition is to increase the level of their business.

In this group: Pierrette, Afiwa Anasthasie, Angèle, Marie, Ayaba Raoul Carine, Agoi Ahotounou Chimène Prudenci, Yasmine Yolande, Irène, Paulette Isabelle, Lydie, Hemma, Denise, Anetou, Anassi
