Jesus-Wegnigbe 1 Group's story

The group Jesus-Wegnigbe 1 is made up of 7 members who live in the same village. The representative of this group, named Afiavi (the woman pictured with her hand raised) is 38 years old. To achieve their goal of enhancing the level of their business and to better meet the demands of their customers, this group is, for the first time, requesting the financial assistance of ALIDé. Afiavi is married to Albert. The couple has four children, of whom some attend school and all of them are in their care. Afiavi lives together with her husband and their children. The couple works together to meet the needs of the household. For the last five years, Afiavi has sold fabrics as a distributor in her region. She stocks up at a market in Benin. In order to enhance the level of her business and to meet the needs of her customers, Afiavi, together with the other members of Jesus-Wegnigbe 1 is requesting a first loan from ALIDé.
