Jesudjro 15 Group's story

JESUDJRO 15 is a group of three people who all live in the same neighbourhood in Bénin and belong to the same tontine group. The group representative, Léocadie Aboyo (who is raising her hand in the photo), is 49 and never went to school. She is a widowed mother of four children, all of whom are in school, two of whom are still under her care. She takes care of her various responsibilities on her own. She lives alone with her children and has sold palm oil for eight years in order to provide for her family's needs. On top of this business, which she runs from home, she also sells vegetable oil. Léocadie Aboyo buys her products in a market in Bénin. In order to provide better customer satisfaction, Christine is requesting her first loan along with her fellow JESUDJRO 15 group members. This loan will allow them to better respond to their customers' demand and to make more profits.

In this group: Léocadie Aboyo, Anne Marie Mariétou, Mahougnon Justine
