Sedjro Group's story

Sedjro is a group composed of 3 people who all live in the same area. The group's representative, Henriette (who has her hand raised in the picture), is 43 years old. Henriette has hardly any schooling. She is married to Benoit and the couple have 4 dependent children, who all go to school. Henriette lives together with her husband and children and the couple both take care of the household expenses and responsibilities.

Henriette has been selling various products (canned goods, sugar, milk) in her district for around a decade. She also sells prepared food (corn pasta, rice and sauce). She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With a view to strengthening her business and satisfying customer demand, Henriette is requesting a 3rd loan from ALIDé in association with the other members of the Sedjro group. The first 2 loans received by the group have been properly repaid.

In this group: Henriette , Julienne, Elise
