Ayidote Ii Group's story

The AYIDOTE II group is composed of 20 persons who live in the same village. This is the first time the group is asking for financial support from ALIDE, in order to increase their level of commercial activity. The representative of the group, Léontine, can be seen in the photo with her hand raised. Léontine is a 53 year old widow. She has six children, some of whom attend school, and only one of whom is still under her responsibility. Léontine lives with this one child and take care of its needs. In order to do this, Léontine has been selling fruits and manioc flour in a region of Benin for the past thirty years. She stocks up in Benin. In order to satisfy her customers and increase her level of commercial activity and her sales, Léontine is asking, alongside the other member of the AYIDOTE II, for her first loan from ALIDE.
