Alogojesuton 8 Group's story

Alogojesuton 8 is a group with 20 members, who all live in the same neighborhood and belong to the same association. The group’s representative is called Marcelline (pictured with her hand raised in the photo), and she is 50 years of age. Marcelline is married to Anatole, and together they have five people under their care, four of whom are their own children (some of them are at school). Marcelline lives with her children and her husband, and together the couple provides for the various household expenses.

Marcelline did not go to school. To cover her various expenses, she has worked for five years selling miscellaneous products, cool-boxes, bags, and shoes, which she purchases in a market in Benin.

In order to better meet the needs of her ever-growing customer base, as well as to make more profits, Marcelline has requested her first loan from ALIDé along with the other members of the Alogojesuton 8 group.

In this group: Marcelline, Romaine, Odette, Philomène, Angélique, Victoire, Viviane, Tognanho, Véronique, Marcelline, Assiba, Martine Victoire, Aline, Irma Flore, Marcelline, Hortense Danvo, Patricia, Bernadette, Akouavi Espérance Victoire, A. Clarisse
