Alexandrine's Group's story

This group has three members, who all live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is called Alexandrine, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. She is 23 years of age, and left school when she was in secondary education. She is married to Eric, and they have one child who is not yet at school, but is under their care.

Alexandrine lives with her husband and her child, and together the couple makes sure that the various household expenses are covered. To provide for the household, Alexandrine has worked for about 15 years selling pearls on the street. She gets her supplies in a market in Bénin. In order to consolidate her business and satisfy customer demand, Alexandrine has requested a loan from ALIDé along with the other members of the group.
