Jesukpego Group's story

The group JESUKPEGO is comprised of three persons who are friends. This is the second time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Hélène Fifamey, is the one in the photo with her hand raised.

Hélène Fifamey is 52 years old and lives in Benin. She halted her studies in primary school. She is married to a plumber named Toussaint. They have seven children, some of whom are in school. Three of the children remain in their care. Hélène Fifamey lives together with her husband and children. The couple jointly ensure that the diverse household expenses are covered.

To cover the various family expenses, Hélène Fifamey has been selling food (cornmeal mash and sauces) for three years out of her home. Her supplies come from a city in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customer and to increase her sales and her income, Hélène Fifamey and the other members of the group JESUKPEGO are requesting a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was indeed repaid.

In this group: Hélène Fifamey, Hounsa Félicité, Kpedekpo Juliette
