Olouwacheyi Group's story

The OLOUWACHEYI group is comprised of three friends who belong to the same revolving credit fund. The group representative, Adjokè Moussilatou, has her hand raised in the photo. This is the first time the group is asking for financial support from ALIDé in order to grow their business.

Adjokè Moussilatou is a widow. Of her six children, only two are still dependent, and all of them go to school. Adjokè Moussilatou lives with her two dependent children and takes care of her needs as well as those of her children.

About 20 years ago, Adjokè Moussilatou started selling hair extensions, jewelry, and other hair products at a market in Benin. Adjokè Moussilatou buys her supplies in Benin.

Her clients' demands are constantly growing, with her limited means, Adjokè Moussilatou is no longer able to respond to their needs. Given that, and taking into account their limited resources, the members of OLOUWACHEYI and Adjokè Moussilatou are asking for a first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Adjokè Moussilatou, Adjaratou, Silifath
