Jesukpego Group's story

The group JESUKPEGO comprises thirteen persons who live in the same district. This is the third time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Cécile, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 38 years old and lives in Benin. Cécile halted her studies in primary school. She no longer lives with her husband but has three children, all in school and in her care. So she lives alone with her three children and ensures their different needs are covered, thanks to the revenues from her business.

For about 25 years, Cécile has been selling chickens, snails, and grocery items on the side in her region. She gets her supplies from regions in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Cécile is requesting, along with the other members of your group JESUKPEGO, a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Cécile, Sèlonwan Tangui, Christine, Clotilde, Jocelyne, Marguérite, Saturnin, Félicienne, Mouniratou, Dieu Donné, Jeanne, Jeanne, Antoinette
