Wadagbe 2 Group's story

The WADAGBE 2 group is made up of three people who are related and live in the same neighbourhood. The group representative, Vihoutou Raymonde, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. This is the group's first request for support from ALIDé. They want to expand their businesses. Vihoutou Raymonde is 56 and has two children, neither of whom are in school. She lives independently and takes care of her needs on her own. She does not have much schooling. She has had her business for about twenty years now. She sells utensils and freezers through the distribution system. She gets her stock from Ghana and Togo. Demand is increasing, and she has limited means. She is not able to respond to her customers' demand. For this reason, and because all of the group members have limited resources, the WADAGBE 2 group is requesting their first loan together from ALIDé.

In this group: Vihoutou Raymonde, Nonhouégnon Rosette, Djariatou
