Da-Yato Group's story

The DA-YATO group has three members who all live in the same neighbourhood. The group leader, Akouavi Pélagie, is shown in the photo with her hand raised.

Akouavi Pélagie is 41 years old and married to Fataï. The couple have four children, some of whom are in school. The couple live together with their children and are jointly responsible for the various household costs.

Akouavi Pélagie attended school to primary level. For nearly 12 years, she has been running a business selling cosmetics and fabrics from home. This enables her to provide for her family without too much difficulty.

In order to better meet her customers’ needs, Akouavi Pélagie would like to buy cosmetic products and fabrics to reinforce her business. In order to do this, she has requested her first loan from Alidé along with the other members of the DA-YATO group.

In this group: Pélagie A, Rahanantou, Suzanne
