Olouwacheyi Group's story

The group OLOUWACHEYI is composed of three persons, who are friends participating in the same tontine together. The group's representative, Moussilatou Adjokè, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 49 years old. This is the second time this group has requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of boosting their businesses. Moussilatou Adjokè is a widow and mother of two children, of whom one is in school, and both are in her care. She lives alone with her children.

Moussilatou Adjokè has had very little schooling. She is alone in ensuring that the household expenses are covered. To do so, she has been selling hair extensions for eight years in her region. Concurrent to this business, she also sells jewelry.

With the goal of bolstering her business and responding better to the demands of her customer, Moussilatou Adjokè together with the other members of the group OLOUWACHEYI would like to obtain a second loan. The last loan was indeed paid back.

In this group: Moussilatou Adjokè, Silifath, Adjaratou O. Amakpé
