Ife Oluwa 3 Group's story

"Ife Oluwa 3" is a group of three people whose members are friends and belong to the same tontine. The group leader, Noëlie (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 36 years old and married to a main named Aimé. The couple have four children, some of whom are in school and in the couple's care. Noëlie lives together with her children and husband. The couple provide for the family together. Noëlie did not attend school, but learned to be a hairstylist, which is a business she has been involved in for eight years. Alongside this business, she also sells hair extensions and hair products at her workplace. She buys her products at a market in Benin. This is the third time that Noëlie and the other Ife Oluwa 3 group members are seeking financial support from ALIDÉ, with the goal of strengthening their working capital and their businesses and better responding to the demands of their clientele. The previous loans were repaid properly.

In this group: Noëlie , Ossilatou, Tadagbé Pauline
