Jesukpego 9 Group's story

The Jesukpego 9 Group consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Honorine, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. This is the first time that this group is seeking financial support from Alide in order to grow their business. Honorine is 34-years old and did not attend school. She is married to Lucien. They have four children, all attending school and their dependents. Honorine lives together with her children and husband. Together with her husband, Honorine takes care of their household expenses. To meet her various resposibilities, Honorine has sold platters of fresh eggs and liquor in a neighborhood of Benin for nearly 15 years. Honorine stocks up in a region of Benin. In order to further strengthen her business and to better respond to her customers' needs, Honorine wants to increase her inventory of goods. To do this, Honorine and the other members of Jesukpego 9 Group are asking for a first loan from Alide.

In this group: Honorine, Solange Perpétue, Charlotte
