Jesudogbe Ii Group's story

The Jesudogbe II group is made up of three people who all live in the same area.

Ayaba Espoir, the representative of this group, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 41 years old and is married to a certain Barthélémy. The couple has no children. Ayaba Espoir lives with her husband, and together they take care of their household expenses.

For this reason, Ayaba Espoir has been traveling around and selling kom (a fermented corn paste) for seven years. She procures her ingredients from a market in Benin and from a slaughterhouse.

In order to increase her business and better respond to customer demand, Ayaba Espoir is seeking a third loan with Alidé, together with the other members of the Jesudogbe II group.

In this group: Ayaba Espoir, Euphrasie, Adjimon Alida
