Medejro Group's story

The MEDEJRO group is made up of three women from the same neighborhood of Kouhounou in Cotonou. This is the second time that the group is seeking financial aid from ALIDé, with the goal of strengthening their business activities.

The group's representative, Jeanne, is shown with her finger raised in the photo. She was born on August 22, 1969, in Bohicon in the department of Zou in Benin. Jeanne is married to a pastry chef named Janvier and has three children, all in school. Jeanne and her husband share responsibility for the family’s expenses. For about 15 years, Jeanne has lived in Kouhounou with her husband and children. In order to support herself and improve her quality of life, for the past eight years she has been selling kitchen utensils (plates, plastic items, etc.), which she buys in Dantokpa, Benin's international market. She also sells fabric on the side. With the goal of satisfying her customers and to increase her income, Jeanne, together with her group, is requesting another loan.

In this group: Jeanne, Anagonou, Rosine
