Zedaga 1 Group's story

ZEDAGA 1 is a group made up of three people who sell the same products. The group's representative, named Natcha Viviane, is the one raising her hand in the photo.

It is the first time that the members of this group are requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to raise the level of their activity.

Married to a man named Landry, Natcha Viviane is the mother of three children, all in school and her dependents. In addition to their children, the couple have another child in their care. Natcha Viviane and her husband live with their children and jointly take care of the household expenses.

Natcha Viviane attended school for a short period of time only. She has been selling condiments at a market in Benin for about ten years, an activity which allows her to meet her needs without much difficulty. She also stocks up at a market in Benin.

In order to better meet her customers' expectations, Natcha Viviane would like to strengthen and diversify her activity. To do this, she and the other members of the ZEDAGA 1 group are requesting their first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Natcha Viviane, Yeyinou Paulette, Léonie Julienne
