Adjomin Alete Group's story

The "Adjomin Alete" group is made up of 4 friends who live in the same area. The group's leader, Denise, is the one with her hand raised in the picture. Denise is 28 years old. This is the first time that this group requests financial support from ALIDé in order to increase their level of business. Denise is married to a mechanic called Zinsou. The couple have 3 children they are raising and who all go to school. Denise lives together with her children and husband. The couple both take care of the various family expenses. Denise has been selling bananas in a town in Benin for nearly 14 years, so that she is able to contribute to the family's different needs. She gets her supplies in her region. Denise wishes to obtain a loan, together with the other members of the "Adjomin Alete" group, in order to increase her inventory of products and better respond to her customer demand.

In this group: Denise , Detien, Emilienne, Françoise
