Gf Djidjoho Group's story

The GF DJIDJOHO group is made up of ten women who are all friends and who live in the same village. This is the 5th time they have asked ALIDé for financial help, so that they can increase their activity. The group's representative, Sidonie, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 36 years old and is married to a farmer called Marcellin. Sidonie lives with her husband and their 6 children. Some of the children go to school, and the couple is responsible for all of them. Together, Sidonie and her husband meet the household's various expenses. To do that, Sidonie has been growing peppers and corn locally for about ten years. She also sells rice. This allows her to easily contribute to the family's expenses.

Sidonie obtains her supplies at markets in Benin. In order to meet customer demand and to increase turnover and profit, Sidonie, along with the other members of the GF DJIDJOHO group, is asking for a 5th loan. The first 4 have all been properly repaid.

In this group: Sidonie, Elisabeth, Lucie, Alice, Julienne, Henriette, Honorine, Marguerite
