A loan of $1,450 helped a member to buy firewood.


Cite Vie Nouvelle Group's story

The Cite Vie Nouvelle group has 6 members who live in the same district. The group's representative, Marie (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 30 years old and married to Romaric. The couple have 3 dependent children who all go to school. Marie lives together with her children and husband, and she and her husband both take care of the household's various responsibilities.

For almost 10 years, Marie has been selling firewood from her home, as well as petrol, as a sideline business. Marie gets her supplies from the wholesalers in Benin. This is the 3rd time that Marie and the other members of the Cite Vie Nouvelle group request ALIDé's financial support, with a view to strengthening their working capital and their businesses, so that they are better able to fulfill their customer demand. The previous loans have been correctly repaid.

In this group: Marie , Diana, Madinatou, Mariama, Gisele Monique Rose, Rita
