Egbeyemi Group's story

The EGBEYEMI group is made up of three people who live in the same area. The representative of the group, named Nafissatou, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. This is the third time that the group is asking for financial support from Alidé with an eye to raising the level of their business. Nafissatou is 40 years old and is married to a man named Yacoubou. The couple has six children, all in school and in their care. The couple lives together and provides together for the household's various needs. Nafissatou attended little school. Nafissatou started her business about seven years old selling mattresses in an area of Benin, which allows her to meet the needs of her family without great difficult. In order to better respond to her customers' needs, Nafissatou wants to reinforce her business. To do this, Nafissatou is asking for a third loan together with the other members of the EGBEYEMI group. Their previous loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Nafissatou, Tiamiou Fatima, Wassaytou
