Jesoukpego Group's story

The group JESOUKPEGO comprises three persons who are friends belonging to the same tontine. The group's representative, Elisabeth Sourou, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. This is the first time this group has requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of boosting business.

Elisabeth Sourou is married to a man named Placide. She did not attend school. The couple have no children. For about ten years, she has been a hairdresser in her district. This enables her to meet her needs without much problem. Parallel to this work, she sells cloth and jewelry. She gets her supplies from a city in Benin.

Seeking to respond further to the requirements of her customers, Elisabeth Sourou would like to increase her stock of products. To do so, she is requesting, along with the other members of the group JESOUKPEGO, a loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Elisabeth Sourou, Chantal, Yèyinou Ruth
