Jesudjro 14 Group's story

JESUDJRO 14 is a group of three persons whose members are friends belonging to the same tontine. The group's representative, Josiane (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 43 years old and married to a printer by the name of Albert. Josiane left secondary school and learned how to sew. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children and jointly ensures along with her husband that the diverse household expenses are covered.

To cope with her different expense, Josiane has been sewing for about twenty years in her home. On the side, she sells kitchen utensils and plates. She gets her supplies from a city in Benin and from Togo.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and aiming to expand her business, Josiane and the other members of the group JESUDJRO 14 are requesting a loan from ALIDé. This loan will be used to respond better to customer demands and to make more profit.

In this group: Josiane Eveline, Irma Djima, Pulchérie
