Jocelyne's story

Born in 1983 in Avrankou, in the department of Oueme, Jocelyne has been living in Sedje for five years. Jocelyne is married to Pierre, a salesman, and is a mother of two; both children attend school. The couple jointly takes care of the household's various expenses. Jocelyne did not go to school.
To provide for her expenses, Jocelyne's main occupation is food retailing (corn paste with sauce, cassava flour); this allows her to support her family. Jocelyne supplements this activity by selling beverages door-to-door. Jocelyne purchases her products in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. In order to meet her clientele's needs, Jocelyne is requesting financial help from ALIDe for the second time. The loans she was granted before well all correctly paid back. In the future, Jocelyne wishes to purchase a plot of land.
