Djrado Group's story

"Djrado" is a group comprising three people who live in the same area in Benin. The group representative, Dédodede Pierre (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 42 years old. Pierre is married to a woman named Léa. The couple have two children, both of whom are in their care and attend school. Dédodede Pierre lives together with his wife and children. The couple provide for the household together. Dédodede Pierre ended his studies in primary school. To meet his various needs, Dédodede Pierre has sold maize and manioc flour in his area for ten years. On the side, he also sells school supplies. Dédodede Pierre gets his supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying his customers and expanding his business, he is seeking a fifth loan with ALIDÉ, along with the other members of the Djrado group. This loan will serve to better respond to the demands of their customers and earn higher profits. The four previous loans were repaid properly.
