Houenoussou Group's story

HOUENOUSSOU is a group composed of six persons who reside in the same town. The group's representative, Joceline (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 37 years old. She is a widow and the mother of four children, all in school. Joceline lives alone with her children and covers their different expenses by herself.

Joceline did not attend school. To cope with supporting herself, she sells hardware and food supplies in a region in Benin. She has been in this business for eight years and gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of responding better to the requirements of her burgeoning customer base and to make more profit, Joceline, along with the other members of the group HOUENOUSSOU, is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. The previously received loans were indeed repaid.

In this group: Joceline , Sènankpon Amina, Houénoumè Elisabeth, Marie, Otchoufoumikè Cécile, Elisabeth
