Miwadagbe Group's story

Miwadagbe is a group with three members, who all live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is called Cathérine, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. She is 40 years of age, and is married to a dressmaker named Simon. The couple has three children, all at school and all under their care. Cathérine did not go to school. She lives together with her children and her husband, and together with him is responsible for the various household expenses. For more than 10 years, Catherine has sold cooked rice with sauce from home, and she gets her supplies from a market in Benin. This is the first time that Cathérine and the other members of the Miwadagbe group have requested the financial support of ALIDé. They have done so to increase their working capital and business, as well as to better meet the needs of their customers.
