Raison Group's story

The RAISON group is made up of three women who live in the same neighborhood. The facilitator of the group, named Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica (who is raising her hand in the photo), is 23 years old. Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica is married to a man named Pascal. They have one child, who goes to school, and whom they financially support. Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica lives with her husband and child. Husband and wife take care of the various household expenses together. Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica left school at the secondary level. In order to support herself, Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica has been selling various cosmetic products through the distribution network for four years. She buys her merchandise at a market in Benin. In order to satisfy her customers and to expand her business, Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica (along with the other two members of the RAISON group) is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to better meet the needs of their customers and to generate more profits. The two previous loans were well repaid.

In this group: Perpétue Judith Adjoua Cica, Cécile, Denise
