Jesukpego 14 Group's story

JESUKPEGO 14 is a group consisting of three people who all live in the same neighbourhood. The leader of the group is called Catherine and is 46 years old (she is raising her hand in the photo). Catherine is married to Mariano. The couple take care of five children, three of whom are their own. All the children go to school. Catherine lives with her children and her husband and together with her husband takes care of the household expenses. Catherine did not go to school. In order to cover the various expenses, over the past fifteen years Catherine has been running a business from her home selling grain as well as a porridge made from millet and sugar. Catherine gets her supplies from a town in Benin. In order to better meet the growing number of customer demands and to increase her profits, Catherine is requesting, together with the other members of the group JESUKPEGO 14, a third loan from ALIDé. All previous loans have been repaid.

In this group: Catherine, Bastatou, Latifatou Alakè
