Sedjrogande Group's story

The SEDJROGANDE group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. Sylvie Edwige, the group's representative, is the person with her hand raised in the photo. She is 30 years old and is married to a man named Richard. Sylvie Edwige did not go to school. The couple has three children, all of whom have received schooling and live in their care. Sylvie Edwige lives with her husband and her children. The couple shares the various household expenses.

In order to contribute to the various needs of her family, Sylvie Edwige has been selling grains in her neighborhood for the past five years. This business allows her to meet her family's needs without difficulty. Sylvie Edwige stocks up at a market in Benin.

Striving to satisfy her customers and increase her sales and her revenue, Sylvie Edwige, along with the other members of the SEDJROGANDE group, is seeking a loan from ALIDé. The loan will allow them to expand their business and increase both their customer base and revenue.

In this group: Sylvie Edwige, Victorine, Yvette
