Jesusmide Group's story

Jesusmide is a group made up of four persons who are friends living in the same neighborhood. The group leader (whose hand is raised on the photo) is named Jeanne. In order to increase their working capital this group is requesting a loan from ALIDé for the first time.

Jeanne is 28 years old and is married to a tailor named Thomas. The couple has four children, some of them attend school and all are their dependents. Jeanne lives together with her children and her husband and together they provide for the household expenses. Jeanne did not attend school. To meet her needs and those of her family, Jeanne has been selling clothes and body ointments from her home for the last six years. At the same time, Jeanne also sells drinks. She gets her supplies from a town in Benin.

This loan will certainly allow Jeanne and her group Jesusmide to enhance the level of their activity and increase their customers and income.

In this group: Jeanne , Martine, Filomène, Julienne
