Djidide Dehou Group's story

The Djidide Dehou group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group is Béatrice (pictured with her hand raised in the photo) who is 40 years old. Béatrice did not attend school. She is married to a mechanic named Saliou, and together they have three children, some of whom attend school and all of whom they support. In addition to their own children, the couple also supports an additional child.

Béatrice and her husband provide for the household expenses. In order to do this, Béatrice has sold various products (canned goods, soaps, sardines, and peanut oil) from her home for ten years. She stocks up at a market in Benin. In order to expand her business, Béatrice is partnering with the other members of the Djidide Dehou group to request their third loan from ALIDé. Their previous loans have been fully repaid.

In this group: Béatrice, Fernando, Blanche
