Yayra Group's story

The group YAYRA comprises three persons who reside in the same district. This is the fourth time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Jeanne, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 32 years old and lives in Benin. She dropped out of secondary school and then learned how to style hair.

Jeanne is married to a man named Eric. They have one child, who is in school and in their care. Jeanne lives together with her child and husband, and she jointly ensures the diverse household expenses are covered.

To ensure the expenses are covered, Jeanne has been running a hair salon for about twelve years. At the same time, she sells hair extensions and cosmetic products. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin.

Seeing to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Jeanne, along with the other members of her group YAYRA, is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé.
