Dogan Group's story

The "Dogan" group comprises four people who belong to the same community. The group representative, named Jocelyne Ernestine, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. Jocelyne Ernestine is 32 years old and lives in Benin. She ended her studies in primary school. She is married to a man named Bruno. The couple have two children, both of whom are in their care and attend school. Jocelyne Ernestine lives together with her husband and children. The couple provide for the various household needs together. In order to pay for various family expenses, Jocelyne Ernestine has sold hair extensions, nail polish, and clothing on the side for five years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying her clientele and increasing her sales volume and income, Jocelyne Ernestine is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDÉ along with the other Dogan group members. The three previous loans were repaid properly.

In this group: Jocelyne Ernestine, Hélène, Aurelie, Nadège Carine Ayabavi
