Jajo Group's story

JAJO is a group of five persons whose members are friends residing in the same district. The group's representative, Yèhomin Christine (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 47 years old and married to a man named Henri. The couple has seven children, all in school. Five of the children remain in their care. Yèhomin Christine did not attend school. She lives together with her children and husband, and along with him, she ensures that the different household expenses are covered.

For over thirty years, Yèhomin Christine has been selling condiments and smoked fish out of her home. She gets her supplies from a market of Benin.

This is the fourth time that Yèhomin Christine and the other members of the group JAJO have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolstering their working capital and their business and responding better to the requirements of their customers. The loans previously received were indeed paid back.

In this group: Yèhomin Christine, Rose Kaï, Akomou Edith, Jeanne Aminata, Dogbé Charlotte
