A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy bags of manioc.


Jesulome Group's story

The JESULOME group is made up of thirteen people who know each other apart from their businesses. The group representative, named Julienne, has her hand raised in the photo. Julienne is 41 years old and married to a reseller named Albert. The couple has four children, all of whom have attended school and three of whom are under their care. Julienne did not go to school. For the last 30 years she has been selling manioc flour, which she makes at home. In addition to this business, she sells fruits. This allows her to pay the family's expenses, along with help from her husband. Julienne buys her products in a village in Benin and resells them in a city in Benin. This is the first time that she and the other members of the JESULOME group have requested a loan through ALIDé. This loan will allow them to increase their business activities and their operating funds, in order to better respond to demand from their customers.

In this group: Julienne, Marie, Mèlanie, Christine, Léocadie, Victorine, Victoire, Bernadette, Monique, Anne, Julienne, Mahinou, Colette
