La Gloire De Dieu Group's story

La Gloire De Dieu, meaning "The Glory of God", is a group of three women who all live in the same neighborhood of Calavi, on the outskirts of Cotonou, Benin's economic capital. They have agreed to support each other in business and loan repayments. This is their third loan through Alidé.

Felicienne (with her hand raised in the photo) is in her 50s, and lives with her husband, Mason, and three of their five children, who have all been through school. For the past 22 years, she has run her stall selling foods, mainly wheat and pork meat. She intends to use this loan to purchase more stock of wheat and condiments for sauces. Her ambition is to expand the scale of her business and, as an entrepreneur, she believes her strength lies in her ability to manage a diversified business.

In this group: Felicienne, Hubertine, Edwige
