Hadjromede 1 Group's story

The Hodjromede group is made up of people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, whose name is Pascaline (and is the one with her hand raised in the photo) is 36 years old and did not go to school. With the goal of raising their business level in order to better meet the demands of her clientele, the group is asking for the first time for the financial support of ALIDé. Pascaline is married to a mason by the name of Dossou. The couple has four children, none of which are in school and all of whom are in their care. Pascaline lives together with her husband and their children. Together, the couple takes care of the needs of the household. It is for this reason that for ten years, Pascaline has sold various products (rice, sugar, oil) from her home. Pascaline stocks up in the market of Benin. In order to grow the level of her business and meet the needs of her clientele, Pascaline together with the other members of Hodjromede is requesting a first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Pascaline, Florentine, Mêhomê Yvette, Bénédicte, Dodji Justin, Elisabeth Oluwatossin, Elise, Agathe, Noudehouenou, Dovomin, Yabo, Josiane, Akouvi, Viviane, Angèle, Louise, Assiba, Anne, Dossi Aline, Alphonsine, Fidélia, Aniankossan, Assiba, Yémalin Célestine
