Ayitcheme 3 Group's story

The group "AYITCHEME 3" is composed of nineteen persons who live in the same district and who belong to the same association. The group's representative, Ayébahi, who is the one in the photo with her hand raised, is 55 years old and married to a man named Soglo. She has three children, all in her care.

Ayébahi did not attend school. She makes cornmeal porridge served with pâté (made from wheat flour and sugar) that she sells at a school in Benin. Concurrent to this business, Ayébahi sells a variety of other goods, and this enables her to do better in supporting her children. Ayébahi has been in this business for about four years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the aim of boosting her business, Ayébahi has the ambition to expand her inventory, which will enable her to respond better to the requirements of her customer. To do so, Ayébahi is requesting, along with the other members of the group AYITCHEME 3, a loan from ALIDé

In this group: Ayébahi, Alix, N. Cendrine Alida, Antoinette, Marie, Florence, Albertine, Charles, Emilienne, Clarisse, Alexandrine, Rosine, Alice, Pierrette, Anastasie, B. Roméo A., Sourou Mathieu, Henriette, Adissétou
