A loan of $575 helped a member to purchase firewood.


Aviwiwe Jesuton Group's story

AVIWIWE JESUTON is a group of three persons whose members are friends or are related. The group's representative, Gisèle (the one in the photo with her hand raised) is 39 years old and has had little schooling. She is married to a man named Casimir. The couple have four children, not all in school, and all are in their care. Gisèle lives with her husband and children. She and her husband jointly ensure that household expenses are covered. To do so, she has been selling firewood and various goods out of her home for ten years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering her business and satisfying customer demand, Gisèle joined with the other members of the group AVIWIWE JESUTON to request a sixth loan from ALIDé. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Gisèle, Clémentine, Valentine Hodédogbé
