Odette Akouavi's Group's story

This group is made up of three people, whose representative is named Odette Akouavi (whose hand is raised in the photograph). The members of the group live in the same area. In order to ease their cash flow, this group is seeking for the first time a loan with Alide.

Odette Akouavi is 35 years old and is married to a hairdresser named Clement. The couple has two children, who are both under their care. The family lives together. The couple together supports the various family expenses. Odette Akouavi did not go to school.

For about the past eight years, Odette Akouavi has been selling Moyo (a local food made with a base of cornstarch accompanied with tomato sauce with fish) in a town in Benin. She procures her goods from a market in Benin.

This first loan will certainly allow Odette Akouavi and her group to increase the level of their business, the number of customers, and their earnings.

In this group: Odette Akouavi, Adidjatou, Micheline
