Amazone Group's story

The Amazon group consists of three persons from the same neighborhood in Benin. The representative of the group, Yvone, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo.

Yvone is 51 years old and is married to Theophile. The couple has four children, all in school and who are their dependents. Yvone and her husband live together with their children.

For the past seven years Yvone has been selling chickens and corn in one of Benin's markets. This enables her to deal with various family expenses, together with her ​​husband. Yvone buys her products in Benin.

This is the first time Yvone and other members of the Amazon group have sought a loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to bolster their activity to better meet customer demand.

In this group: Christine, Henriette, Yvone, Chimène, Homilowa, Ahouéfa Viviane, Nicole Christiane, Ablawa Lynda Flore, Baïvi Florentine, Florence, Adjo, Eliane, Chantale
