Ayidote 7 Group's story

The AYIDOTE 7 group consists of three friends who belong to the same savings group. This is the group’s 4th time seeking financial support from ALIDé to bolster their activities. The group’s representative is Germaine Akoua, seen in the photo with her hand raised. Germaine Akoua is 50 years old and she lives in Bénin. She is married to a cook named Samuel. They have six children, and some of them go to school. Germaine Akoua never went to school, but she did learn to sew. As a sideline to this activity that allows her to support herself and her children, Germaine Akoua also sells sewing notions and palm oil from her home. She has been doing this for 18 years. She buys her stock in a city of Bénin. To achieve customer satisfaction, and to bolster her sales and revenue, Germaine Akoua is seeking a 4th loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the AYIDOTE 7 group. All three past loans were correctly repaid.

In this group: Germaine Akoua, Appoline, Akominassi Jeannette
