Ayidote 5 Group's story

The Ayidote 5 group is made up of four people who are friends and live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, whose name is Brigitte, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Brigitte is 57 years old and married to a mason called Crespin. The couple has five children, some of whom are at school and two of whom they still support. Brigitte did not go to school. She lives with her children and husband. She and her husband provide for the household's various needs between them. In order to cover the various expenses, Brigitte sells rice and vegetable oil from home. She has been carrying out this activity for the past 12 years. She gets her supplies in her region. In order to satisfy her customers' demand and increase her turnover and income, Brigitte is, together with the other members of the Ayidote 5 group, requesting a third loan from Alidé. This loan will enable them to increase their stock and customers. The previous loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Brigitte, Rafiath, Martine, Mouïnath
