Alodo Alome Group's story

ALODO ALOME is a group composed of three persons whose members reside in the same town. The group’s representative, Martine (with a hand raised in the photo), is 45 years old and married to a driver named Imarou. The couple have seven children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children. She and her husband jointly ensure that the diverse family needs are met.

Martine did not go to school. For nearly 23 years, she has been selling food (fried yams served with bean beignets) and soaps in her region. She operates her business with passion. It enables her to help meet family needs. She purchases her products at a market in Benin.

This is the fourth time that Martine and the other members of the group ALODO ALOME have requested a loan from ALIDé enabling them to bolster their businesses and to respond better to the requirements of their customers. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Martine, Rose, Solange Huguette
