Yemalin-Femi 3 Group's story

The YEMALIN FEMI-3 group is composed of nine people who live in the same neighborhood.

Jeanne, the representative of the group, is the person raising her hand on the photo. To raise the level of their activity and better cope with the demands of their customers, the group asks for a third time financial support from ALIDé.

Jeanne left school at the secondary level. She is 54 years old, a widow and mother of three children, all of whom attend school and are her dependents. Jeanne takes care of household expenses. This is why for the past seven years Jeanne has been selling fruits and produce from her home. She gets her supplies from one of Benin's markets.

To strengthen their business and better serve their customers, Jeanne and other members of the YEMALIN 3-FEMI group are requesting a third loan from ALIDé. Their aim is to increase the level of their activity. Previous loans have been fully repaid.

In this group: Jeanne, Christelle, Hélenne, Afiavi Flora, Rachelle, Pauline, Viviane, Gisèle, Philomène
