Jesugo 5 Group's story

The Jesugo 5 group has three female members, who are all friends and live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is called Yèyinou, and is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. This is the third time that this group has requested financial assistance from Alidé, and they have done so to increase their business levels.

Yèyinou is 57 years of age, and is married to a man named Olivier. The couple has two children, one of whom is at school and one of whom is dependent on them. She lives with her husband and children, and the couple covers the various household expenses.

Yèyinou did not go to school, and for about 30 years has worked selling cereals (millet, bundles of wood, corn) from home. She gets her supplies in a town in Benin. Customer demand is increasing, and given her limited resources, Yèyinou cannot respond to this demand. As a result, and given their limited means, Yèyinou and the other members of the Jesugo 5 group have requested a third loan from Alidé. Their first two loans were successfully repaid.

In this group: Yèyinou , Lokossi, Sènoumè Déborah
