Ife Group's story

The IFE group is made up of three friends who stock up at the same place. This is the third time that the group is seeking financial support from ALIDé, in order to boost their business.

Odounyêmi Maqsoudath (the woman who is raising her hand in the photo) is the group's representative. She is 28 years old and married to a man named Deen. The couple has three children, all of whom live in their care. Some of their children have received schooling. Odounyêmi Maqsoudath stopped her studies at the secondary school level. She lives with her husband and children. Odounyêmi Maqsoudath and Deen both provide for the various household needs.

In order to cover the various expenses, Odounyêmi Maqsoudath sells corn, charcoal, trays of eggs, and various other items in her neighborhood. She has been running this business for four years now. She stocks up in her region.

Odounyêmi Maqsoudath, along with the other members of the IFE group, is seeking a third loan from ALIDé to help her achieve her goal of satisfying her customers and increasing both her sales and revenue. The loan will allow the group members to increase their inventory of products and grow their customer base.

In this group: Odounyêmi Maqsoudath, Célestine Edwige Fifamè Adjoua, Enagnon Valerie
