Yemalin Femi 4 Group's story

The Yemalin Femi 4 group is made up of 20 people who live in the same district and who have income-generating activities. The representative of this group, whose name is Pauline, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Pauline is 56 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to a man called Valentin and the couple has three children in their care, some of whom are at school. Pauline lives with her children and husband. She and her husband cover the various household expenses between them. In order to do this, Pauline has been selling various food products (corn, rice, etc.) from home for the past four years. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin. Pauline would like to be able to satisfy more customer demand but does not have sufficient financial means to expand her business. In order to do this she is thus requesting a fourth loan from Alidé together with the other members of the Yemalin Femi 4 group.

In this group: Pauline, Ayoko, Pierrette, Epiphanie, Angèle, Perpétue, Akouélé, Albertine, Olive Mewegnonso, Lucie, Essivi, Pélagie, Reine, Georgette Maryline, Sahossi, Antoinette, Damienne, Bernadette, Afi Lydia, Elisabeth
