Ognatan Group's story

The Ognatan group is made up of two people who are friends. The representative of this group, named Marie Parfaite, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. This is the second time that this group has asked for financial support from Alidé to see an increase in their level of business.

Marie Parfaite is 54 years old and no longer lives with her husband. She has two children, both of whom are under her care. One goes to school. Marie Parfaite lives alone with her children, and she alone takes care of their needs. Marie Parfaite did not go to school.

For about 15 years now Marie Parfaite has been selling shoes by the distribution system. This allows her to meet her and her children's needs without much difficulty. In hopes of further strengthening her business and better responding to the demands of her customers, Marie Parfaite wants to increase the stock of her products. To do this, Marie Parfaite, with the other member of group Ognatan, is asking for a second loan through Alidé. Their first loan has been repaid.

In this group: Marie Parfaite, Odette Solange
