Cica's story

Born in Ouidah, Mrs. Cica Dodnon went to school for only two years. After leaving school, she helped her mother sell maize porridge. Then, on her own account, she began to sell bread and cooked food: a mixture of rice and beans accompanied by fries, commonly called "atassi". But she preferred selling bread and so finally stopped selling "atassi". She added the sale of vegetable oil for cooking. She is requesting this loan of 120,000 F CFA to bolster her business. Married, she has 6 children, of whom the youngest, Blanchard Samuel, is only 5 months old.
