Jesukpego Group's story

Jesukpego is a group comprising three people who live in the same area in Benin. The group representative, named Medessè Rosnelle (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 37 years old. Medessè Rosnelle no longer lives with her husband, but has one child who attends school and is in her care. Medessè Rosnelle lives alone with her child and provides for the household by herself. She did not attend school. To meet her various expenses, she has run a business selling various items (canned goods and soap) door-to-door for close to seven years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of better responding to the needs of her growing clientele and earning higher profits, Medessè Rosnelle is seeking a second loan with ALIDÉ, together with the other members of the Jesukpego group. The first loan was repaid properly.
