Jesutogbe 3 Group's story

The group JESUTOGBE 3 is comprised of ten people who all live in the same town. The group’s representative, by the name of Zansi Christine, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Zansi Christine is a widow who supports five children, who have all had schooling. For 27 years, she has lived alone in Tchonvi with her five children, and she ensures by herself that their various expenses are covered. To do so, she makes a variety of meals (rice, corn mash, with sauce, etc.) that she sells out of her house. She gets her supplies from Dantokpa, the international market of Benin.

This is the first time that Zansi Christine and her group has requested a loan from ALIDé. This loan will serve to bolster their businesses in order to respond better to the demands of their customers.

In this group: Zansi Christine, A. Thérèse, Cathérine, Alice, F. Odile, Blandine, Rosemonde, Anne-Marie, Lucienne, Germaine
