A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy animal feed.


Djromahouton Group's story

DJROMAHOUTON is a group of eleven people whose leader’s name is Noel (the one who is raising his hand in the photo). The group members live in the same village. In the goal of increasing their working capital, this group is seeking their first loan from ALIDé. Noel is 35 years old and lives in Benin. Noel is married to a saleswoman named Léonie. The couple take care of four children. Some of the children attend school. Noel has never gone to school. In order to provide for his family, Noel raises and sells sheep and ducks. Noel has been doing this for twenty years, which allows him and his wife to provide for their family. Noel stocks up on animal feed in one of Benin’s cities. This first loan will certainly allow Noel and the other members of the DJROMAHOUTON group to raise the level of their business and to increase their clientele and revenue.

In this group: Noel, Romain, Germain, Martine, Léonie, Jean, Cathérine, Bienvenu, Blandine, Ruffine, Marcais
