Ayitchedote Group's story

AYITCHEDOTE is a three-person group whose members all live in the same neighborhood in Benin.

The group representative, Mondoukpè (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 37 and is married to a mechanic named Djimon. The couple has four dependent children who all go to school. Mondoukpè and her husband live with their children and take care of their expenses. Mondoukpè did not go to school.

For close to 10 years, Mondoukpè has been selling engine oil and diesel oil out of her home. Mondoukpè is a passionate worker, and this allows her to meet her needs as well as those of her children. Mondoukpè buys her supplies in a city in Benin and also in Nigeria.

With the goal of satisfying her clients, the members of AYITCHEDOTE and Mondoukpè are asking for a second loan. This loan will help them better respond to the needs of their clients and to increase their profits. Their first loan was repaid.

In this group: Mondoukpè , Fifamè Rosalie, Médessè Denise
