Ife Oluwa 1 Group's story

The group "Ife Oluwa 1" is composed of 3 people who belong to the same tontines, have similar businesses and get their supplies in the same area. The group's representative, Hounsi Mègbè, is 57 years old and has her hand raised in the picture. Hounsi Mègbè is a widow. She has 2 children, one of whom goes to school. Hounsi Mègbè lives alone with her children and takes care of the different household responsibilities by herself. She did not go to school.

Hounsi Mègbè has been selling food (rice with sauce) from her home for nearly 14 years; this enables her to meet her family's needs without too much difficulty. In order to better be able to respond to the demands of her customers, Hounsi Mègbè would like to buy some bags of corn and some cans of oil to strengthen her business. In order to do this, she and the other members of the "Ife Oluwa 1" group are requesting a 3rd loan from ALIDé. The previous loans have been correctly repaid.

In this group: Hounssi Mègbè, Clarisse, Jacqueline
