Jesutogbe 2 Group's story

JESUTOGBE 2 is a group of ten individuals, whose members live in the same village. To increase their commercial activity and to better meet the demands of their customers, this group has approached ALIDé to obtain a loan. The representative of the group, Suzanne (whose hand is raised in the photo), was born in 1968 in Aguégués, Benin. Suzanne is married to a fisherman named Theodore and is the mother of three children, all attending school. Suzanne lives with her ​​husband and children. The couple works together to pay off household expenses. Suzanne did not attend school. In order to support the family and contribute to domestic expenses, Suzanne sells porridge (made ​​from corn) with fritters (made from wheat flour) and sugar at home. Secondarily, Suzanne sells mats. Suzanne buys her products at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin. This loan will allow Susan and her group to increase their sales and profit.

In this group: Suzanne, Marie, Eliane, Thérèse, Edith, Henriette, Rosaline, Suzanne, Philomène, Nicole
