Ayidote 30 Group's story

"Ayidote 30" is a group of 3 people, whose members all live in the same district in Benin. The group's representative, Hortense Mireille (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 45 years old and married to Boniface. The couple have 4 children who all go to, or have been to, school, 3 of whom are still in their charge. Hortense Mireille and her husband live together with their children and take care of the different household expenses together.

Hortense Mireille did not get much schooling. She has been selling various products (eggs, corn) at her home for about 15 years. She does her job passionately, which allows her to provide for her needs and those of her children. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin.

In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, Hortense Mireille is requesting a first loan, together with the other members of the "Ayidote 30" group. This loan will help them to better respond to customer demand and earn more profits.

In this group: Hortense Mireille , Flore Edwige, Afiavi Julienne
