A loan of $550 helped a member to buy fabrics.


Échelle Group's story

The ÉCHELLE group is made up of three members who live in the same neighborhood. It is the first time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of its activity.

The group's representative, Mickmanth Modjissola, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. She is 30 years old and single. She has one child who is her dependent and who goes to school.

Mickmanth Modjissola stopped studying at the university level. She now lives alone with her child and takes care of her own needs by herself. In order to cover her various expenses, she sells fabrics, through the distribution system. She has been involved in this activity for the past four years, buying her supplies from a market in Benin and in Togo.

In order to satisfy her customers' needs, and to increase her turnover and income, she is requesting a first loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the ÉCHELLE group. This loan will be used to raise her inventory and to increase the group's customer base.

In this group: Mickmanth Modjissola, Ichola Loukoumane, Théodora Carine
