Ayidote De So-Kpa Group's story

The Ayidote De So-Kpa group is made up of three people who are long-time friends. The representative of the group, who is named Ayaba Sibiatou Denise, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo.

Ayaba Sibiatou Denise is 52 years old and a widow. She went to school until the secondary level. She has three children, who have all been to school and who are now no longer under her care. She lives alone.

In order to meet her needs, Ayaba Sibiatou Denise has been selling personal care products (toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.) and fabrics for ten years. She procures her goods in a market in Benin.

In order to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and earnings, Ayaba Sibiatou Denise is asking, together with the other members of the Ayidote De So-Kpa group, for their sixth loan with Alide. Their previous loans have all been re-paid.

In this group: Ayaba Sibiatou Dénise, Thèrèse, Léontine Adjoivi
