Ife Lodoun 1 Group's story

The IFE Lodoun 1 group is made up of three people who are friends from the same neighbourhood and belong to the same tontine group. The representative of the group who is named Valerie is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Valerie is 37 years old. She did not attend school. Valerie no longer lives with her husband. She has four children, some of which go to school. Valerie lives with her children and assumes the various expenses for them alone. To do this, Valerie sells various articles and cosmetic products as a distributor. Valerie buys her stock in Nigeria. In order to satisfy her customers and to increase her turnover and her income, with the other members of the IFE Loudoun 1 group, Valerie requests a first loan from Alidé.

In this group: Valérie, Karamath, Baïkissou
