Sang De Jesus Group's story

The group SANG DE JESUS consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood in Benin. This is the third time that the group is seeking financial assistance from ALIDé to bolster their activities.

The group’s representative is Fabei Blandine, whose hand is raised in the photo. Fabei Blandine, age 60, is a widowed mother of six dependent children who have all attended school. She lives with her children and supports their various needs.

Fabei Blandine never attended school. For the past 15 years, she has been selling cereals (maize, beans) and yams. This allows her to support her family without much difficulty.

To meet customer demand, Fabei Blandine wants to strengthen her stock and bolster her activity. To that end, she is seeking a third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group SANG DE JESUS.

In this group: Fabei Blandine, Viviane, Agossi Florentine
