Ayidote 3 Group's story

AYIDOTE 3 is a group of three friends who stock up at the same place. Joséphine, the group's representative, is the one who is raising her hand in the photo. She is 62 years old and married to a merchant named Simon. The couple has five children, all of whom live in their care. Some of their children have received schooling. Joséphine did not go to school. She lives with her children and her husband, and she and her husband both cover the various household expenses.

Joséphine has been selling various items from her home for almost thirty years now. She stocks up at a market in Benin.

This is the third time that Joséphine and the other members of the AYIDOTE 3 group are seeking the financial support of ALIDé, in view of strengthening their working capital and their business, and better responding to the demand of their clients. The two previous loans were paid back correctly.

In this group: Joséphine , Adèle, Henriette
