Vivogbe Group's story

The "Vivogbe" group comprises four people who run businesses in the same area. The group leader, Léontine Akouavi, is the woman whose hand is raised in the photo. Léontine Akouavi is 41 years old and married to a man named Prosper. She did not attend school. The couple have one child, who attends school and is in their care. The couple live together with their child and provide for the household together. For close to 18 years, Léontine AKouavi has sold plastic utensils and onions at a market in Benin. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. This business allows her to meet her needs and those of her child without too much difficulty. Léontine Akouavi and the other members of the Vivogbe group are seeking financial support from ALIDÉ for the third time, with the goal of strengthening their working capital and better responding to their customers' needs. The two previous loans were repaid properly.
