Alogojesuton Group's story

The group ALOGOJESUTON comprises thirteen persons who reside in the same district. This is the second time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Germain, is the one in the photo with his hand raised. He is 61 years old and married to a retailer named Catharine. The couple have three children, not all in school but in their care. Germain lives together with his children and wife. The diverse household expenses are covered by the couple.

Germain did not go to school but learned how to fish. This is a business he has been working at for about fifteen years, and it brings in significant revenues. On the side, Germain sells fish and some nets at a market in his region. He gets his supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy his customers and to increase his sales and revenues, Germain is requesting, along with the other members of the group ALOGOJESUTON, a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was indeed paid back.

In this group: Germain, Tassivi, Blandine, Himbigbé Noelie, Sonagnon Louise, Yvette, Basile, E. Bernadette, Diane, Yvonne, Edwige, Odette, Alice*
