Jesoudonan 1 Group's story

Jesoudonan 1 is a group of 22 people whose members live in the same town and form tontines together. The group leader, Pascaline (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 33 years old and married to a sounder named Jean. The couple have seven children, some of whom are in school. Pascaline did not attend school. She lives together with her children and her husband. The couple provide for the household together. For close to twenty-five years, Pascaline has sold various items and processed palm nuts on the side at her home. She gets her supplies at a city in Benin. This is the second time Pascaline and the other members of the Jesoudonan 1 group are seeking financial support from ALIDÉ with the goal of diversifying their businesses and better responding to the needs of their clientele. The previous loan was repaid properly.

In this group: Pascaline , Mahoudo Cécile , Justine , Rita , Mariam , Constance , Yvonne , Abagoun , Sêwanoudé , Pauline , Georgette , Ayaba , Victorine , Cécile , Falilatou , Marie , Cathérine , Pascaline , Akpugnitodé , Florence Mahoumè , Praxédé , Emmilienne
