Noudehou Group's story

The group NOUDEHOU consists of twelve friends who live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is Lucienne Hortense, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Lucienne Hortense is 44 years old and she lives in Benin. She ended her studies at the secondary level. She is married to a man named Laurent and she has two dependent children, one of them being her own child. She lives with her husband and their children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together. To that end, Lucienne Hortense sells kitchen utensils (plates, etc.) and firewood from her home and through the distribution system. She buys her merchandise in Benin. To achieve customer satisfaction and to increase her sales and revenue, Lucienne Hortense is seeking a 4th loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group NOUDEHOU. All three past loans were repaid without incident.

In this group: Lucienne Hortense, Christiane, Edith, Blandine, Antonine Blandine, A. Agnès, Amevi Jeanne, Euphrasie, Rufine, Jacqueline, Albertine, Françoise
