The representative of the group, Chimène Djivèdé Laurinda (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 35 years old and is married to a certain Fortuné. The couple has three children, all in school and under their care. Chimène Djivèdé Laurinda went to school very little. Chimène Djivèdé Laurinda lives together with her husband and her children. The couple takes care of the different household responsibilities together. To do this, Chimène Djivèdé Laurinda has been selling fabric and shoes from her home for about 20 years.
