Fifa Christon 1 Group's story

The FIFA CHRISTON 1 group is made up of fourteen members who live in the same neighborhood. It is the second time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to raise its level of activity.

Houé Clémentine, the group's representative, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. She is 42 years old and married to a man named Alexis. They have no children. Houé Clémentine lives with her husband and shares with him the various household expenses.

In order to cover these expenses, Houé Clémentine has been selling fabrics and sewing supplies for six years. This activity allows her to meet her needs. She buys her supplies at a market located in Benin.

Eager to satisfy the needs of her customers, and to increase her turnover and income, she is requesting a second loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the FIFA CHRISTON 1 group. The group's previous loan was duly repaid.

In this group: Houé Clémentine, Tété Faustine, Salimath, Rachidatou, Pascaline, Rabiatou, Oluwafèmi Rébécca, Tchéhoutou Anne, Cathérine, Adidjatou, Méhouédé Odile, Brigitte, Elise, Ayaba Delphine
