Yemalin Group's story

The Yemalin group is composed of 12 persons who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group is named Julienne; she has her hand raised on the photo.

Julienne is 36 years old and lives in Benin. She did not attend school. She is married to Gildas. The couple has four children all under their care. Three of the children are their own. Julienne lives together with her husband and her children. Together the couple provides for the various household expenses.

For the last ten years, to meet the various household needs, Julienne has been selling liqueur and other items from home. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. She contributes to the various household expenses with the revenue generated by her activity.

In order to meet her ever-increasing customer demand, Julienne, along with the other members of the Yemalin group, is requesting a second loan from ALIDé. The previous loan was fully reimbursed.
