Missebo Group's story

The group "Missebo" is made up of 3 people who are friends and live in the same area. The group's representative, Joséphine, is 36 years old and has her hand raised in the picture. Joséphine is married to Joël, a farmer. The couple have 8 children, some of whom go to school. Joséphine and Joël live together with their children and take care of the different household responsibilities together. Joséphine has had little schooling.

Joséphine has been selling various items and processing palm nuts for nearly 12 years, which enables her to meet her family's needs without too much difficulty. Joséphine would like to strengthen her business so that she can better satisfy her customers. In order to do this, Joséphine is requesting her 4th loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of the "Missebo" group, so that she can buy palm nuts, palm wine and various other items. The previous loans have been properly repaid.

In this group: Joséphine, Françoise, Souradja
