Jesuwame Group's story

The group Jesuwame is made up of four people who live in the same neighbourhood. This is the fifth time they have requested financial assistance from Alidé to increase their business activity. The group's leader is Honoré, who is shown with his hand up in the photo.

Honoré is 47 years old and lives in Benin. He didn't go to school. Honoré is married to Elisabeth, and the couple have five children, all of whom attended school. They still have three of the children in their care.

For 15 years, Honoré has been working as a fisherman to provide for the family. Along with the other members of his group, he is seeking a fifth loan from Alidé in order to buy the equipment he needs to work and catch more fish. This loan will allow him to increase his revenue and thereby his income. The previous loans have been successfully repaid.

In this group: Honoré , Elisabeth, Hodonou Jacob, Alatin
