La Victoire 9 Group's story

La Victoire 9 is a group of three people, of which the members all live together. The representative of the group, Albertine, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. Albertine is 43 years old and is married to a Lookman, a miller. The couple has five children, all under their care. Some of the children go to school. Albertine and Lookman live together with their children. Together, the couple takes care of the different household expenses. Albertine did not go to school. Albertine sells various goods (rice, soap, sugar, sardines, oil) and charcoal from her home. She procures her goods in a market in Benin. This business allows her to support her and her family's needs without much difficulty. Albertine and the other members of the La Victoire 9 group are seeking for their first time financial support from Alide in order to increase their working capital and their business, and to better respond to the needs of their customers.

In this group: Albertine , Alougba Bertille, Micheline Omonniyi
