A loan of $1,200 helped a member to purchase shoes, fabrics, and flatware.

Fifa Group's story

FIFA is a group of five people, all of whom reside in the same village and belong to the same tontine group. In order to raise the level of their businesses and better respond to the demands of their clientele, the group approached ALIDé hoping to receive another loan.

The representative of the group, Rachelle (with her hand raised in the photo), is 35 years old. She is married to a man named Alfred, a farmer, and is the mother of three children, all of whom are in their care. Rachelle lives together with her husband and children. The couple works together to provide for the different needs of the household. Rachelle has never attended school.

In order to help make ends meet, Rachelle began selling shoes, fabrics, and flatware ten years ago out of her home. With the goal of increasing the level and diversification of her business, Rachelle is asking for a sixth loan via ALIDé along with the other members of the FIFA group.

In this group: Rachelle, Alatin, Kinhodé Ségbégnon Aimée, Julienne, Adelle
