Akuegnon Group's story

The "Akuegnon" group comprises four people who live in the same area. The group leader, Jeannette, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. Jeannette is 31 years old and did not attend school. She is married to a man named Pascal. The couple have four children, all in school and in the care of their parents. Jeannette lives with her husband and children. The couple provide for the family together. In order to do this, Jeannette has sold bouillie (a cereal-based dish), beignets (made of wheat), and shrimp door-to-door for fifteen years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying her clientele and increasing her sales volume and income, Jeannette is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDÉ, along with the other members of the Akuegnon group. The previous loans were repaid properly.

In this group: Jeannette , Mélanie, Hôwé, Christine
