Jesukpego Group's story

Jesukpego is a group of three persons; all members live in the same area.

Suzanne is the representative of the group (her hand is raised on the photo). She is 51 years old and is married to a driver named Stephane. The couple has 10 children, all attended school, but only two of them are her dependents. Suzanne lives together with her husband and her two dependent children. The couple provides together for the various household expenses.

Suzanne never attended school. To cover her various expenses she has been selling used clothing, firewood and cosmetics for the last five years in a town of Benin. Suzanne gets her supplies in a market in Benin.

In order to strengthen her activity and to better meet her customers’ demand, she is requesting along with the other members of the Jesukpego group, a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan they received has been fully reimbursed.

In this group: Suzanne , Julie, Victoire
