Vap4 Group's story

The VAP4 group consists of fourteen people who all live in the same neighbourhood. This is the first time that the group is requesting financial support from the micro-finance institution ALIDé in order to improve the level of their businesses. The leader of the group is called Jeanne. She is raising her hand in the photo. She is 48 years old and married to Augustin. The couple has eight children who are all educated, two of whom are in their care. Jeanne lives together with her husband and her children. The couple takes care of the various household expenses. To this end, Jeanne has been selling food in a neighbourhood in Benin for 17 years. In addition to this activity, Jeanne also sells pasta. These business activities enable her to cater to her family's needs. She gets her supplies from her neighbourhood and from a market in Benin. In order to ensure customer satisfaction and increase her revenue and income, she is requesting her first loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the VAP4 group.

In this group: Dénassè, Mahugnon Estelle, Jérémie, Florentine, Yvette, Justine, Adèle, Hortence, Mahugnon Mariette, Pierrette, Nafissath, Lahanatou, Jeanne, Valérie
