L'eternel Est Mon Berger-Vedoko Group's story

This group, L'Eternel est mon berger-Vedoko (The Lord is my Shepherd) is composed of eight persons who live in the same neighborhood. This is the fifth time that this group is requesting ALIDé's financial support, in order to raise their activity level. The group's representative, named Philomène, is the woman raising her hand on the picture.
Philomène was born in Benin on February 29, 1968. She is married to a retailer named Yves. The couple has four children, who all go to school; two of them depend on them financially. Philomène lives together with her husband and children. In order to provide for herself and her children, Philomène sells fried yams, fried plantains and bean-based fritters in her neighborhood. As a secondary activity, she also sells spaghetti. Philomène gets her supplies from a city in Benin.
Seeking customer satisfaction and to increase her sales and profit, Philomène is requesting a fifth loan together with the other members of the group L'Eternel est mon berger-Vedoko.

In this group: Philomène, Christine, A. Mabel*, Thérèse Dogbo, Micheline, Fifatin, A. Delphine, Micheline
