Teodebi Group's story

Teodebi is a loan group with both male and female members, and its president is called M’baka. She works growing crops, is married to a farmer, and has six children, five of whom are at school. The oldest child is 27, while the youngest is 5 years of age.

M’baka is 42 years of age, and has worked growing beans and corn since 1987 in the Tchanié area, located in the central region. She still buys her supplies from the town of Sokodé. She is assisted in her work by three members of her family, as well as four other employees.

M’baka has requested her fifth loan from WAGES to buy better-performing work tools. She plans to save her extra income and, in the future, hopes to increase the land on which she grows crops and build a new house for her family. The other members of the group have the same businesses as their president, and also want to increase the size of the land on which they grow crops.

In this group: M'baka, Kpiligou, Kaga, Kossera, Tadibigueda, Kpatinama, Batama
