Moulikatou Abikètou's Group's story

This group is composed of six persons who reside in the same district. Moulikatou Abikètou (with her hand raised in the photo) is the group's representative. She is 53 years old and a widow with three children, not all in school and two in her care.

Moulikatou Abikètou lives alone with her children. She did not attend school. To cope with her different expenses and to feed her family, Moulikatou Abikètou has had a business selling charcoal and condiments out of her home for twenty years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering her business, Moulikatou Abikètou is joining with the other members of her group to request an initial ALIDé loan.

In this group: Moulikatou Abikètou, Yannick M., Rosaline, Pulchérie N. A., Micheline, Florence M. A. F.
