Ridwane-Laï Group's story

"Ridwane-Laï" is a group of 3 people whose members get their supplies in the same area and belong to the same tontines. The group's leader, Moïbatou, is the one whose hand is raised in the picture. She is 44 years old and is married to Antoine, a miller. Moïbatou did not go to school. The couple have 2 children, neither of whom attend school. Moïbatou lives alone with her children and takes care of the different household responsibilities by herself.

Moïbatou sells food, corn and rice from her home. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. This business allows her to meet her needs and those of her children without too much difficulty.

Moïbatou and the other members of the "Ridwane-Laï" group are requesting financial support from ALIDé for the fifth time, with a view to strengthening their businesses and better meeting the demands of their customers. The previous loans have been properly repaid.

In this group: Moibatou, Choukouratou-Laï Adénikè, Rafouath Abakkè T.
