Jesutogbe 4 Group's story

The JESUTOGBE 4 group consists of four women who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, Emilienne, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. It is the seventh time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to increase its level of activity. Emilienne is married to a man named Barnabé. Emilienne and Barnabé have four children, all in school and their dependents. Emilienne lives with her husband and children and takes care of the various household expenses with her husband. She has never attended school. In order to cover her various expenses and for the past fifteen years or so, Emilienne has been selling fresh fish, beans, and various other goods, from her home. She buys her goods at a market in Benin. Eager to better meet her customers' needs and in order to raise her income, Emilienne would like to increase her stock of products. To this end, she is requesting a new loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the JESUTOGBE 4 group.

In this group: Emilienne, Valentine, Lidia, Layo Christine
