Gbetodjin Enonmon Group's story

GBETODJIN ENONMON is a group composed of three persons, including the president (with her finger raised in the photo) by the name of Adjoavi. The group members are friends, and they live together in the same area in Sainte Rita, in Cotonou, the economic capital of Benin. Born on February 27, 1947 in Cotonou, Adjoavi has lived in the Sainte Rita district for two years. She is a widow with four children, who have all had schooling. Two of the children are still in her care. She therefore lives alone with her children and covers their various expenses by herself.

For about four years, Adjoavi has been doing commerce in corn and rice at her house. Concurrently, she sells cassava flour and some canned foods. This business brings in the revenues that help her to meet the different needs of her children. She gets her supplies at Dantokpa, the international market of Benin, and in the town of Savalou, in central Benin. This is the second time that she has requested financing from ALIDé in order to expand her business and increase her turnover, as well as her revenues.

In this group: Adjoavi, I. Béatrice, A. Alice C.
