Houenoussou Iii Group's story

Houenoussou III is a group composed of sixteen people, whose president (who is raising her hand on the picture) is named Pascaline. The group's members live in the same village in Benin. In order to increase their working capital, this group is requesting a loan from ALIDé for the second time.
Born in Benin in 1970, Pascaline lives together with her husband and children in a town in Benin. She is married to a farmer named Dieudonné and has four children, who all attend school. Pascaline provides for the family's various expenses together with her husband. She never went to school.
For about eight years, Pascaline has been producing palm oil, which she sells out of her home. In parallel to this activity, Pascaline sells fabrics. This business generates revenues and helps her to contribute to family expenses. Pascaline purchases her products at one of Benin's markets.
This first loan will certainly allow Pascaline and the other members of the Houenoussou III group to raise their level of activity, grow their clientele and increase profits.

In this group: Yvette, Pascaline, Victorine, Léocadie, Vicencia, Sika, Elise, Dopé, Simone, Suzanne, Jeanne, Emilienne, Djinantou, Célestine, Akègnidé, Karène
