Sedjro 3 Group's story

The group SEDJRO 3 consists of five members who are also friends. They are seeking a second loan from ALIDé to bolster their working capital. The group’s representative is Pélagie, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Pélagie, age 31, is married to a man named Wilfrid. The couple have two dependent children, both in school. Pélagie lives with her husband and their children, and the couple handle the household responsibilities together. Pélagie attended high school.

To help provide for the family’s needs, Pélagie has been selling hair extensions and cosmetic products out of a shop for nearly four years. She buys her merchandise at a market in Benin.

This loan will help Pélagie and the other members of SEDJRO 3 to strengthen their activities, to expand their customer base, and to increase their revenue. The previous loan they obtained was repaid without incident.

In this group: Pélagie , Naïmath, Catherine Jeanne, Aline, Ablawa Jeannette
