Missimide 12 Group's story

"Missimide 12" is a group of three people whose members are friends and belong to the same tontine. The group leader, Angèle (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 32 years old and married to a man named Bernard. The couple have three children, some of whom are in school, and all of whom are in the care of their parents. Angèle did not attend school. She lives together with her children and husband. The couple provide for the household together. For close to fifteen years, Angèle has sold shoes, bags, and diapers on the side at home. She gets her supplies at a city in Benin. This is the second time Angèle and the other members of the Missimide 12 group 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 first loan was repaid properly.

In this group: Angèle , Sènami Adèle, Afi
