Phila-Minthe Group's story

The PHILA-MINTHE group is made up of three members who live in the same house. The group's representative, named Philaminthe, is 30 years old. She is the woman raising her hand in the photo.

Philaminthe only attended school for a very short period of time. She is married to a man named Jean-Marie. Philaminthe and Jean-Marie have one child who goes to school and is their dependent. Philaminthe lives with her husband and her child and jointly takes care of the household expenses with her husband.

In order to contribute to the expenses of the family, Philaminthe has been selling fabrics through the distribution system for four years. She buys her merchandise at a market located in Benin.

Eager to satisfy the needs of her customers, and also to increase her turnover and income, she is requesting a first loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the PHILA-MINTHE group.

In this group: Philaminthe M., Rosaline, Téfia
