Amis De Jesus Group's story

Group “Amis de Jésus” (friends of Jesus) is composed of three persons residing in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative, named Jeanne, is raising her hand in the photo. Jeanne is 42 years old; she left school at the primary level. Jeanne is married to a mechanic named Mesmin. The couple has four dependent children, who all go to school. Three of the children are their own. Jeanne lives together with her children and husband. The couple supports the household together.

To pay for her various expenses, Jeanne has been selling beauty and personal care products for almost eight years. Jeanne gets her supplies from a market in Benin. In order to strengthen her business and to better satisfy her clients, Jeanne wants to increase her stock. To do so, she is requesting this third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of group “Amis de Jésus.”
