Jesukpego Group's story

The Jesukpego Group is made up of three women who live in the same neighbourhood. This is the third time that the group has requested a loan from the field partner, Alidé, to expand their businesses.

Honorine (seen in the photo with her hand raised) is the group representative. She is 35 years old and married to Lucien. Together, they have four children who all attend school. One of their children is still dependent on them. Honorine did not attend school. She lives together with her husband and their remaining dependent child. Between them, they provide for the expenses of their household. In order to do this, Honorine sells maize, rice and oil in her neighbourhood. Alongside this, she also sells trays of fresh eggs. She buys her supplies in a region of Benin.

Honorine is trying to please her customers and increase her earnings, so she, and the other members of the group, have requested this third loan from the field partner, Alidé. The loan will enable them to increase their stock levels and attract more customers.

In this group: Honorine, Solange, Christine
