Massavo 1 Group's story

The Massavo 1 group is made up of 19 people who live in the same district in Benin. This is the second time that the group is requesting financial help from ALIDé in order to be able to increase the level of their business. The group's representative, Cécile, is the one whose hand is raised in the picture. Cécile is 26 years old, married and has one child. Her child goes to school and lives with Cécile. Cécile did not go to school. She is a seamstress. She has also been selling kitchen utensils and other items from her home as a sideline business for 7 years. Cécile gets her supplies in a town in Benin. In order to be able to satisfy her customers and increase her turnover and income, Cécile is requesting a second loan from ALIDé, together with the other Massavo 1 group members. This loan will enable them to increase their product inventories and their clientèle.
