Ataley 1 Group's story

Ataley 1 is a group of 20 people, all of whom live in the same neighborhood and belong to the same association. The president of the group is called Pascaline Afiavi, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. She is 42 years of age, and is married to Eric. The couple has two children, both at school and both under their care. Pascale Afiavi lives with her husband and children, and together the couple ensures that the various household expenses are covered.

Pascaline Afiavi went to high school and, for about three years, has worked selling plastic kitchen utensils and sets of bowls through the distribution system. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Faced with growing demand from her customers, Pascaline Afiavi plans to increase her working capital and expand her business, so that she can better meet her customers’ requests. This is why she has requested financing from ALIDé, along with the other members of the Ataley 1 group.

In this group: Pascaline Afiavi, Geneviève Mahoulé Korédé, Aubierge Virginie, Davodoun, Marie, Emma Denise, Aminath, Brigitte Mahougnon, Hortence, Arcadye, Bernadette, Solange, Bernadette A., Camelle, Florence Bibavi, Denise, Angèle, Adjouavi Julienne, Adeleye Edwige, Abikou Marguérite
