Yelian Group's story

YELIAN is a group which comprises seven women who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Jeanne Béatrice, is 42 years old. She is also the group member raising her hand in the photo. She is married to a man named Hubert. Together, they have thirteen children in their care, six of whom are their own children. Jeanne Béatrice and her husband live with their children and jointly take care of the various household expenses. Jeanne Béatrice left school at the primary level.

Jeanne Béatrice sells frozen products, food supplies and charcoal from her home, an activity which allows her to meet her family's needs without any major difficulty. Eager to better satisfy her customers' needs, she would like to strengthen her activity. In order to do so, she is requesting a first loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the YELIAN group.

In this group: Jeanne Béatrice, Afoussé, Valerie Jima, Chantal, Egnonkè Sophie, Vissétodé Jézabel, Jeanne
