Hodonou Group's story

Hodonou is a group of three individiuals living in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative, by the name of Julienne, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Julienne is 32 years old. She did not attend school. Her husband’s name is Samuel. They have two dependent children, both in school. Julienne lives together with her husband and children. The spouses jointly provide for household needs. In order to do so, Julienne has been selling kitchen utensils and soap via a distribution system for 20 years. Julienne stocks up at a market in Benin. With the goal of bolstering her business and meeting customer demand, Julienne has joined forces with the other members of the Hodonou group to apply for a new loan from ALIDé. Their prior loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Julienne , Juliette, Pélagie
