Prudencia's Group's story

This group comprises three women from the same neighborhood who have decided to come together to request their first loan from ALIDé.

Prudencia, the group's representative, is 38 years old. She is married, and she has had two children with her husband, Maxime, who works as a cook. In the photo, Prudencia is the woman raising her hand in the middle of the group.

Prudencia's children are in school and live with their parents.

In order to help her husband to take care of the day-to-day expenses, Prudencia has been buying fabrics at a local market for the past six years. She then resells her merchandise from home.

She is now taking this loan in order to develop her activity.

In this group: Prudencia , Elisabeth, Raliatou
