Fibetado Group's story

The Fibetado group consists of nineteen people who are friends and live in the same village. The person representing the group is named Adidjatou (the one with the hand raised on the photo). She is 30 years old.

Adidjatou did not attend school. She married a farmer named Sègbégnon. The couple has four children, all attending school and all under their care. Adidjatou lives with her ​​husband and children, and the various family expenditures are handled by the couple.

To achieve this, Adidjatou has been running a business selling corn and beans throughout the region since she was six. In addition to her core business lady Adidjatou also sells gari (cassava flour). She resupplies in one of Benin's markets.

To increase the level of their activity, Adidjatou and the other members of the Fibetado group are requesting a first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Adidjatou, Paulette, Geneviève, Valérie, Fatima, Justine, Fifamè, Latifath, Geneviève, Bernadette, Micheline, Mahouti, Justine, Adélaïde, Elodie, Célestine, Estelle, Joséphine, Séraphine
