A loan of $2,375 helped a member to buy sheep and poultry.

Jesulome Group's story

The JESULOME group is made up of nine people who all live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, André (who is raising his hand in the photo), is 48 years old and married to a seamstress named Félicité. André is the father of three children, all of whom have received schooling and live in the care of their parents. André lives with his wife and children. He and his wife both cover the family's various expenses. André did not go to school.

André has been selling sheep and poultry from home for about fifteen years now. He runs this business so that he can support his family. He stocks up in different regions in Benin.

Striving to satisfy his customers, André, along with the other members of the JESULOME group, is seeking a fourth loan. The loan will allow them to better meet the demand of their customers and earn more profit. The previous loans were correctly repaid.

In this group: André, Justine, Chantal, Jeannette, Mireille Sabine, Falylatou, Henriette, Pélagie, Séfou
