Sedjro Group's story

SEDJRO is a group made up of seven members who live in the same neighborhood. The facilitator of the group, Victorine (raising her hand in the photo), is 39 years old and married to a mechanic named Jean. The couple has four children, all in school and all their dependents. Victorine lives with her husband and children. Together with her husband, she takes care of the various household expenses. Victorine has never attended school. In order to cover her various expenses, she sells kitchen utensils and fruits, door-to-door. She stocks up at a market in Benin. In order to boost her activity level and to attract more customers, she is requesting a second loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the SEDJRO group. Her previous loan has already been repaid.

In this group: Victorine, Pierrette, Catherine, Baï Pascaline, Mélanie, Florence, Sènakpon Monique
