Yemalin Femi 6 Group's story

The YEMALIN FEMI 6 group comprises seventeen members. It is the third time that this group is requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to raise its level of activity.

Thérèse, the group's representative, is the woman wearing a purple outfit, second from the left in the front row, next to another woman dressed in yellow. She is 47 years old and lives in Benin. She never attended school. She is a widow and the mother of two children who both go to school and are her dependents. She lives with her children.

In order to cover the household's various expenses, Thérèse has been selling palm oil and food products, from her home, for the past five years. She buys her merchandise from a market located in Benin.

In order to satisfy the needs of her customers, and to increase her turnover and income, she is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the YEMALIN FEMI 6 group.

In this group: Thérèse, Dédé Ahouéfa Christelle, Heleine, Perpéture Dédégan J., Flrorence, Nadège Maryse, B. Heleine, Marthe, Eugénie, Heloise, Yvette, Sidonie, Micheline, Carole, Sossi Henriette, Erda Sènami, Albertine Medenou
