Missimahu 1 Group's story

The group MISSIMAHU 1 is composed of three persons who are friends living in the same village. This is the third time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost business. The group's representative, Rebecca, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 52 years old and married to a furniture maker named Pierre. The couple have six children, all in school, of whom four remain in their care. Along with her husband, Rebecca ensures that the diverse household expenses are covered.

To support herself and her children, Rebecca has been selling rice and beverages for about thirty years out of her home. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and revenues, Rebecca is requesting, along with the other members of the group MISSIMAHU 1, a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans were indeed paid back.
