Adjeniya Group's story

The ADJENIYA group is made up of three people who all live in the same neighborhood. This is the first time that the group has asked for financial aid from Alidé, in order to increase their level of activity. The group's representative, Latifatou, has her hand raised in the photo. Latifou is 28 years old and lives in Benin. She did not go to school. Latifou is married to Waïbi. The couple have two children, one of whom goes to school. Both children are in their care. Latifou lives together with her husband and children. She and her husband both pay for the household's expenses. In order to meet her family's expenses, for the last five years Latifou has been selling cosmetic products (powder, cotton) on foot. She obtains her supplies from a town in Benin. In order to meet customer demand and increase turnover and income, Latifou, along with the other members of the ADJENIYA group, is asking for a first loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to increase the level of their activities and make more profit.
