Jlomawouton Group's story

JLOMAWOUTON is a group composed of 14 people who live in the same village. They all have an income-generating activity. This is the first time that this group requests a loan from ALIDÉ, in order to increase their business and to better meet the needs of their customers. The group representative, Gisèle, is the one raising her hand on the picture. Gisèle is 31 and is married to a farmer named Roger. The couple takes care of their 4 children. Some of them go to school. They both take care of the family financially. Gisèle never went to school. To support her family, Gisèle has been selling various products (rice, corn, palm oil) in her area. In addition to that, Gisèle processes cassava into cassava flour, which she also sells in her area. Gisèle buys her supplies from Benin. It is the first time that Gisèle and the other members of JLOMAWOUTON are applying for a loan from ALIDÉ. This loan will be used to boost their business.

In this group: Gisèle, Lucienne, Philomène, Albertine, Antoinette, Marie, Justine, Aline, Avoutoui, Jeanne, Sabine, Assiba, Julienne, Pélagie
