Djro Oklounonton Group's story

The DJRO OKLOUNONTON group consists of three members who live in the same locality in Benin.

Yvette, the group's representative, is the one raising her hand in the photo. It is the fourth time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of its activity.

Yvette is 42 years old and married to a retailer named Séïdou. Yvette and Séïdou have eight children who are all in their care. Some of their children attend school. Parents and children live together, and the couple jointly takes care of the various expenses of the household. Yvette never attended school.

Yvette has been selling telephone recharge cards and various products, in her neighborhood, for almost fifteen years. Thanks to this activity, she is able to meet her needs without much difficulty. She buys her goods locally, in her region.

In order to better meet the needs of her customers, Yvette would like to boost and diversify her activity. This is why she is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the DJRO OKLOUNONTON group.

Previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Yvette, Philomène, Céline
