Jesus Christ Group's story

The JESUS CHRIST group is made up of 17 people who live in the same neighborhood and who belong to the same family. Sènan Victorine, who is all the way in the back of the photograph with her hand slightly raised, is the group representative. This is the first time that the group is seeking the financial support of ALIDé, in order to expand their business. Sènan Victorine is 40 years old and married to a man named Grégoire. The couple has two children, both of whom have received schooling and live in their care. The couple lives with the children and covers the household expenses together. Sènan Victorine did not attend school, but learned hairdressing instead. She has been a hairdresser for seven years now, and this business allows her to meet her various needs. Sènan Victorine also sells cosmetic products in her studio. She buys her products at a market in Benin. Striving to be more and more competitive and better meet the demand of her customers, Sènan Victorine wants to obtain a loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the JESUS CHRIST group.

In this group: Sènan Victorine, Frimasse Chimène Ablawa, Pélagie, Huguette Géofroide, Sikiratou, Suzanne, Durelle Nevile, Françoise, Jacqueline, Rosaline, Christine, Dénakpo Félicienne, Edwige, Bernice, Eliane, Charlotte, Suzanne
