Our incredible team

ProGen is more than just an organization. It’s a family

Born into a large and poor polygamous family in Parakou, Benin, at a young age she started doing odd jobs to support herself until she completed her secondary education with a specialization in Accounting.
The first in her family to pursue higher education, she continued her university studies and obtained a Master’s degree in Business Law from the University of Parakou as well as a Certificate in Civic Leadership from the African Center of Higher Education in Management in Dakar, Senegal.
With a vision of a world where educational frameworks are conducive to furthering one’s knowledge, as well as a desire to help children in the same situation as she once was, she made use of her education and skills and founded ProGen Benin.
Passionate about social issues, her hobbies include traveling and discovering new cultures, furthering her knowledge through reading and research, and listening to music.
