Djidjohognon Group's story

The DJIDJOHOGNON group is made up of three people who all live in the same neighborhood. This is the ninth time that the group has asked for financial aid from Alidé, in order to increase their level of activity. The group's representative, Pascaline, has her hand raised in the photo. Pascaline is 52 years old and lives in Benin. She did not go to school. Pascaline is a widow and has three children, none of whom has been to school. Only one of the children is still in her care. Pascaline lives alone, and takes care of her needs and those of her child on her own. In order to meet their expenses, Pascaline sells utensils and plastic items in a market in Benin. She obtains her supplies locally and in a town in Benin. In order to meet customer demand and increase turnover and income, Pascaline, along with the other members of the DJIDJOHOGNON group, is asking for a first loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to increase the level of their activities and make more profit. The first eight loans have been fully repaid.
