Nougbognon 1 Group's story

The Nougbognon 1 group is made up of three people who have the same religious beliefs. The representative of this group, whose name is Jeanne Oueke Françoise, is the lady who is raising her hand in the photo. It is the third time that this group has requested financial aid from Alidé and they are doing so in order to increase their business volume. Jeanne Oueke Françoise is married to Yves, a teacher, and has four children, all of whom are studying and two of whom are in her care. She and her husband cover the various family expenses together. Jeanne Oueke Françoise left school at secondary level and then learnt dressmaking. She has been exercising this activity in her neighborhood for almost nine years. She also sells haberdashery products as a secondary activity, which allows her to provide her family's needs without any problem. Customer demand is becoming more and more significant, and in view of her limited means, Jeanne Oueke Françoise is no longer able to meet this demand. In view of this and their limited means, she and the other members of the Nougbognon 1 group are together requesting a loan from Alidé.

In this group: Jeanne Oueke Françoise, Julienne, H. Rita
