Alogo Group's story

The Alogo group comprises four people, all of whom live in the same area in Benin. The group representative, Antoinette (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 35 years old and married to a serviceman named Pascal. The couple have four children, all in school and in the care of their parents. Antoinette and her husband live together with their children. Antoinette ended her studies in secondary school. For close to fifteen years, she has sold maize and charcoal at her home. Alongside this activity, which allows her to provide for herself and for her children, Antoinette also sells sauce condiments at her home. She gets her supplies in North Benin. With the goal of satisfying her customers, Antoinette is seeking a loan along with the other Alogo group members. This loan will allow her to better respond to the demands of her clientele and generate more profits.
