Houétchédé Flore's Group's story

This group is composed of three persons who live in the same district. The group's representative, Houétchédé Flore (with her hand raised in the photo), is 40 years old and has a secondary level education. She is married to a man named Ayouba. The couple have no children. Houétchédé Flore lives by herself. The diverse household expenses are covered by her and her husband. For this reason, she has been selling school supplies and staple foods (corn and peanuts) out of her home for eight years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. With the goal of bolstering her business and satisfying customer demand, Houétchédé Flore and the other members of her group are requesting financial support from ALIDé for the first time.

In this group: Houétchédé Flore, Rita Assiavi, Mélanie Ablawa
