Jesutogbe 3 Group's story

The Jesutogbe 3 Group is made up of eight people, all of whom live in the same neighbourhood and run complementary businesses. The representative of the group, Zansi Christine (pictured with her hand raised), is 46 years old and married to a man named Emmanuel. The couple has five children, all of whom are in school and dependents.

Zansi Christine lives together with her husband and children. The couple works together to provide for the different needs of the household. Zansi Christine never attended school. Zansi Christine has been preparing food for a very long time (corn, rice, and bean pastries), which she sells from her home. Zansi Christine buys her stock at a market in Benin.

This is the fourth time that Zansi Christine and the other members of the Jesutogbe 3 Group have asked for financial support through ALIDé with a view to reinforcing their capital and businesses, as well as being able to better respond to the demands of their clientele.

In this group: Zansi Christine, Affiavi Thérèse, Cathérine, Alice Homagnissin, Fifamè Odile, Blandine, Anne Marie, Lucienne
