Edjromede Group's story

The Edjromede Group comprises three women who live in the same neighbourhood. The representative of the group, Sourou Philomène, is pictured here with her hand raised. Sourou Philomène is 54 years old and lives in Bénin. She has not attended school. Sourou Philomène is married to a gardener named Victor. The couple has five children, three of whom are in their care. All of the children are attending school. Sourou Philomène lives together with her husband and children. The couple works together to provide for the different needs of the household.

In order to meet the various needs of the household, Sourou Philomène has been selling corn, fish, and peanut oil from her home for five years. She buys her stock at a market in Bénin. Thanks to the profits she has earned through this business, she contributed to the various expenses of her household.

To satisfy her ever-growing clientele, Sourou Philomène is asking for a loan via ALIDé for the fifth time along with the other members of the Edjeromede Group. The previously issued loans were properly repaid.
