Sedekon Group's story

The Sedekon group is composed of three friends living in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative, by the name of Yvette, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Yvette is 28 years old and is married to Eric, a stonemason. They have two children, one of whom is in school and both of whom are in the couple’s care. Yvette never attended school. Yvette lives together with her husband and children. Together with her husband, Yvette provides for various family needs. In order to support herself, Yvette sells fabric out of her home. She has been in this business for eight years. Yvette stocks up at a market in Benin markets. With the goal of meeting customer demand and increasing her sales volume and he revenues, Yvette, together with the other members of the Sedekon group, is seeking a fourth loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow the group members to enlarge their stock of goods and attract more customers. The prior loans have been duly repaid.
