Jeanne Ablawa's Group's story

This group is made up of two people who live in the same neighbourhood. The group representative is Jeanne Ablawa (with her hand raised in the photo), who is 46 years old. Jeanne Ablawa did not attend much school. She is married to Christophe, and they have two children who are their financial responsibility, and who both attend school. Jeanne Ablawa and Christophe are responsible for all the expenses of their household. This is why she has distributed fabric, coolers, shoes and jewellery for 15 years. She buys her supplies at a market in Benin. In order to strengthen her business, Jeanne Ablawa has joined with the other member of her group to request this first loan from the field partner Alidé.

In this group: Jeanne Ablawa, Martine
