A loan of $300 helped a member to purchase phone recharge cards and charcoal.

Lokossou Claire's Group's story

This group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group is Lokossou Claire (pictured with her hand raised) who is 38 years old. Lokossou Claire is married to a reseller named Clément. Together they have three children, all of whom attend school and whom they support. Lokossou Claire lives with her husband and children, and together she and her husband take care of the household expenses.

It is for this reason that she has been selling phone recharge cards and charcoal from her home for fourteen years. She stocks up with wholesalers in her region. In order to expand her business, Lokossou Claire joined with the other members of her group to request this first group loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Lokossou Claire, N. Jeanne, Natacha
