Afepeb Group's story

The group AFEPEB is composed of five persons, who are members of the same association. Adama (with her hand raised in the photo) is the group's representative. She is 45 years old and married to a driver named Soulé. The couple have three children, not all in school but all in their care. Adama lives with her husband and children.

The couple jointly ensure that the different household expenses are covered. To do so, Adama has been selling staple foods and charcoal out of her home and at a market for seventeen years. She gets her supplies from a city in Benin. With the goal of bolstering her business, Adama joined with the other members of the group AFEPEB to request a second loan from ALIDé. The first one was indeed paid back.

In this group: Adama , Paule Edith, Abewo Rébecca, Aimée Laurence, Yawa Berthe
