Akuewegnigbeto Group's story

AKUEWEGNIGBETO is a group of five people, who all live in the same region of Bénin. The group representative, Djidjoho (who has her hand raised in the photo) is 34 years old. Djidjoho is married to a man named Clément. They have three children, all in school - two of whom are still living at home. Djidjoho lives together with her husband and those two children. The couple cover the various living expenses of the household together. Djidjoho stopped school after primary education. In order to cover her various outgoings, Djidjoho has sold fresh fish in a Bénin market for the last eight years. She buys her supplies at a market in Bénin. With a view to satisfying her customers, and in order to grow her business, Djidjoho is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDé, together with the other members of the AKUEWEGNIGBETO group. This loan will be used to better meet their customer's needs, and to help them increase their profits. The first three loans are all repaid.

In this group: Djidjoho, Pélagie, Marie, Françoise, Dossi
