Ifesowakpo Group's story

The IFESOWAKPO group is made up of three friends who live in the same neighborhood. Justin, the group's representative, is the man who is raising his hand in the photo. Justin is 31 years old and married to a merchant named Baïra. The couple has three children, all of whom live in their care. Some of their children have received schooling. Justin lives with his wife and children, and he and his wife both provide for the family's needs.

In order to provide for the family's various needs, Justin has been working as a couturier in his region for the past ten or so years. On the side, he sells phone cards. This business allows him to support his family without much difficulty. Justin stocks up in his region and in a town in Benin.

Striving to satisfy his customers and increase his sales and revenue, Justin, along with the other members of the IFESOWAKPO group, is seeking a third loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to expand their business and increase their customer base and their revenue. Their previous loans were correctly repaid.
