Titomagba 2 Group's story

The TITOMAGBA 2 group is made up of fifteen people who all live in the same village and who are involved in revenue-producing activities. The group's leader, Juliane, has her hand raised in the photo. Juliane is 50 years old and lives in Benin. She is a widow and has four children. Only one of the children is in her care, and some of them have been educated. Juliane lives with her dependent child, and she pays for the various needs of her child.

To meet her expenses, Juliane makes palm oil (from palm nuts), which she sells locally. Alongside this activity, she makes cassava flour, which she also sells locally. Juliane has been doing this for around twenty-five years. She obtains her supplies in the local area. Juliane wants to sell her products to more customers, but she does not have enough financial resources to allow her to increase the level of her activity. For this reason, she is asking ALIDé for a loan, along with the other members of the TITOMAGBA 2 group.

In this group: Juliane, Léocadie, Madeleine, Josephine, Micheline, Louise, Véronique, Béatrice, Sika, Lucienne, Pierrette, Pauline, Virginie, Christine, Virginie
