Jesukpego-Zogbo Group's story

The Jesukpego-Zogbo group consists of three persons who reside in the same neighborhood. Kouèba Marguerite is the representative for the group, and is raising her hand in the photo.

She is 56 years old and is married to a forwarding agent named John. The couple has five children, all of whom attend (or have attended) school, and three of them are still dependents. Kouèba Marguérite has not attended school herself.

For the past ten years, Kouèba Marguérite has been selling corn, wheat flour and cassava flour through the distribution system. Alongside this activity, she also sells local beverages. This allows her to contribute towards the various family expenses. She gets her supplies from Nigeria and also from a village in Benin.

This is the third time Kouèba Marguérite and other members of the Jesukpego-Zogbo group have sought a credit loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to strengthen their business to better meet the needs of their customers. The first two loans have been fully reimbursed.

In this group: Kouèba Marguérite, Sogbossi, Madeleine
