Jesukpego Group's story

JESUKPEGO is a group consisting of 30 people and whose president (the one who has the raised hand in the photo) is named Cécile. The members of the group live in the same village. To increase their working capital, the group seeks, for the second time, a loan from ALIDé. Cécile is 37-years-old and lives in Bénin. Cécile no longer lives with her husband but only with her three children. All of her children are in school. Cécile has very little schooling. In order to meet her needs and those of her children, Cécile conducts the business of selling chickens, ducks and snails. Alongside this activity, Cécile sells clothing. Cécile has been in this business for around ten years, enabling her to provide for the various family expenses. Cécile stocks up in one of the towns of Bénin. This second loan will certainly allow Cécile and the other members of the JESUKPEGO group to raise the level of their activity and to increase their customer base and their income.

In this group: Cécile, Sèlonwan Tangui, Christine, Clotilde, Jocelyne, Marguérite, Saturnin, Félicienne, Mouniratou, Dieu Donné, Jeanne, Jeanne, Antoinette
