Edjromahu Group's story

EDJROMAHU is a group of three persons whose members reside in the same district in Benin. The group's representative, Elisabeth (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 44 years old and married to Moïse, a fisherman. The couple support four children, not all in school. Elisabeth lives together with her children and husband. She is alone in ensuring that the different expenses are covered for the children.

Elisabeth did not attend school. For nearly fifteen years, she has had a business selling shrimp and fish door to door. She operates her business with passion, and this enables her to meet her needs and those of her children. She gets her supplies from a city in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers, Elisabeth is requesting, along with the other members of the group EDJROMAHU, a sixth loan for responding better to customer demands and making more profit. The previous loans were indeed paid back.
