Sedjrogande 1 Group's story

The group SEDJROGANDE 1 is composed of twelve persons, who live in the same district. The group’s representative, Dorcas, is the one with a hand raised in the photo. She is 34 years old and married to blacksmith named Martin. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children.

Dorcas ensures along with her husband that the diverse household expenses are covered. To do so, she has been hawking clothing and some Chinese products for seven years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering her business, Dorcas and the other members of the group SEDJROGANDE 1 are requesting an initial loan from ALIDé.
