Dagbegnikin 1 Group's story

"Dagbegnikin 1” is a group composed of 11 individuals living in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative, Rosalie (raising her hand in the photo) is 44 years old. Rosalie is married to Epiphane, a driver. They have three dependent children, all in school. Rosalie lives together with her husband and children. The spouses jointly provide for various household needs. Rosalie didn’t go to school. In order to support herself, Rosalie sells condiments, canned food and smoked fish at one of the Benin markets. Rosalie stocks up in Benin. With the goal of expanding her business and becoming more competitive on the market, Rosalie, together with the other members of the “Dagbegnikin 1” group, is seeking her third credit from ALIDé. Their two prior loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Yaotcha, Therese, Sylvie, Boco Ida Hermionne, Lokossou Rosaline, Elisabeth, Sidonie, Akossiba Pauline, Micheline, Delphine, Pelagie
