A loan of $950 helped a member to buy firewood for resale.

Jesugnon Group's story

The group JESUGNON consists of three people who live in the same area. Their representative is Julienne, age 41, whose hand is raised in the photo. She is married to a man named Daton, and they have five dependent children who all go to school. Julienne herself never received any formal schooling. She lives with her husband and their children, and for the past 10 years, she has been selling firewood and other items in her district. This activity allows her to handle the household responsibilities. She buys her stock at a market in Benin.

To bolster their working capital and activities, and to better meet customer demand, Julienne and the other members of JESUGNON are seeking a loan from ALIDé.
