Ayitcheme 8 Group's story

The group Ayitcheme 8 is made up of 30 people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Agnès, is the one who is raising her hand in the photo. This is the first time this group has requested a loan from ALIDé in order to raise the level of their businesses.

Agnès is 54 and is married to Frédérique. The couple have two children who are both enrolled in school and are their dependents. Agnès lives together with her husband and children. The couple share in covering the household expenses. For this reason, Agnès has been selling religious articles for 15 years. She buys her inventory in an area in Benin.

Wishing to grow her business and better respond to the demand of her clientele, Agnès, together with the other members of the Ayitcheme 8 group, is requesting a loan.

In this group: Rafiatou, Béatrice, Jeanne, Madellaine, Honorine Affiavi, Assiba Sabine Josiane, Mathiase, Solange, Aimée, Estelle, Yaba Françoise, Félicité Honorine, Pauline, Marguérite, Abodato, Firmine Afi, Diane, Léopoldine, Chantale Rosemonde, Agnès, Angèle, Léocadie, Mêdessè Adèle , Estelle Adjokè, Lolita Yolande Carmen, Clémentine, Virginie, Bernice Norbeline, Florentine, Monique
