A loan of $750 helped a member to buy cosmetic products, hair extensions and charcoal for resale.


Okpe Group's story

OKPE is a group of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The group is representated by Clémentine Donsi, age 40, seen in the photo with her hand raised. Clémentine Donsi never went to school. She is married to a man named Marcellin, and they don’t have any children. The couple live together, and they both provide for their household. To that end, Clémentine Donsi has been selling cosmetic products, hair extensions and charcoal locally for eight years. She buys her stock at a market in Bénin. To bolster her working capital, Clémentine Donsi is seeking a 4th loan from ALIDé together with the other members of OKPE. All past loans were correctly repaid.
