Ayissogbe Group's story

Ayissogbe is a three-person group whose members live in the same neighborhood. The group representative, Colette (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 34 years old.

Colette did not go to school and is married to Martin. The couple has four dependent children - some of whom go to school. The couple lives with their children and takes care of the household expenses together.

In order to meet the needs of her children, Colette has been baking wheat flour cakes and selling them out of her home for nearly 10 years.

Colette gets her supplies in a city in Benin. With the goal of growing her business and being more competitive on the market, Colette would like to increase her stock of supplies. This will allow her to grow her turnover and revenues.

For this reason, Colette and the other members of the Ayissogbe group, are requesting another loan with ALIDé. The previous loans have been repaid.

In this group: Colette , Madeleine Kohonou, Romaine
