Yvette Assiba's Group's story

This group is composed of three persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Yvette Assiba, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. This is the first time this group has requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of boosting their businesses. Yvette Assiba is a widow and the mother of three children, not all in school, but all in her care.

Yvette Assiba did not go to school. She lives alone with her children and ensures by herself that their expenses are covered. For this reason, she has been selling a variety of goods (rice, sugar, soap, etc.) via the distribution system for thirteen years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of increasing her stock of products and responding further to the demands of her customers, Yvette Assiba together with the other members of her group would like to obtain a loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Yvette Assiba , Kuassiba Mesmine Bérénice, Aminatou
