Edith Assiba's Group's story

This group of three women lives in the same neighbourhood.

Edith Assiba (seen in the photo with her hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 45 years old and did not attend school. She is married to a teacher called Sylvestre, and they have three children who all attend school. Edith Assiba lives with her husband and their children, and between them they provide for the needs of their family. To do this, Edith Assiba has been selling onions for twenty years. She buys her produce at a market in Bénin.

Edith Assiba and the other members of her group would like to improve their businesses, so they have requested a second loan from the field partner, Alidé. Their first loan was fully and correctly repaid.

In this group: Edith Assiba, Edwige, Marcelline
