Fifonsi Group's story

The FIFONSI group is made up of three women who all live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Baï M. Florence, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. Baï M. Florence is 46 years old and married to a man named Clotaire. The couple has four children, all in school and their dependents. Baï M. Florence lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the various expenses of the household. In order to contribute to the family's various needs, Baï M. Florence has been selling fabrics and hair extensions through the distribution system, for about nineteen years. She buys her goods at a market located in Benin. It is the second time that Baï M. Florence and the other members of the FIFONSI group are requesting a loan from ALIDé in order to boost their activity level and to better meet the needs of their customers. Their first loan was duly repaid.

In this group: Baï M. Florence, Elisabeth, Pauline
