Jesugnon 6 Group's story

JESUGNON 6 is a group of three people. The members are friends who live in the same neighbourhood. The group representative, Floride (who is raising her hand in the picture), is 43 and married to a man named Sylvain. The couple has five children, some of whom are in school, all of whom are under their care. Floride lives with her husband and children. The couple shares childcare duties. Floride did not go to school. She has sold coal and various items from her home for fifteen years now in order to contribute to the household costs. Floride is passionate about her work, since it helps her to provide for her children and for herself. She gets her products in various regions of Bénin. In order to provide better customer service, Floride and her fellow JESUGNON 6 group members are requesting a sixth loan. This loan will allow them to better respond to customer demand and to make better profits. Their previous loans were paid back well.

In this group: Floride, Madeleine, Akpoton
