Jesulome 1 Group's story

JESULOME 1 is a group of three persons whose members are friends residing in the same district. The group's representative, Kpèdétin (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 37 years old and married to a laundryman named Mathieu. The couple has six children, of whom some are in school. All of the children are in their care.

Kpèdétin did not attend school very much. She lives together with her children and husband. The couple jointly ensures that the different household expenses are covered. For ten years, Kpèdétin has been selling "boulles de pâtes" (made from cassava starch) and bread out of her home. She gets her supplies from the region.

This is the first time that Kpèdétin and the other members of the group JESULOME 1 have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolstering their working capital and their work, as well as responding further to the demands of their customers.

In this group: Kpèdétin , Rébécca, Louise
