Les Anges De Dieu Group's story

The Angels of God is a group made up of three people, whose members live together in the same neighborhood in PK11 in the Sèmè-Podji commune. The representative of the group, Elisabeth (whose hand is raised in the photo) was born in 1964 in Lagos, Nigeria. Elisabeth is married to a retailer named Kola. The couple has four children, all educated and living in their care. Elisabeth and her husband moved into PK11 with their children almost seven years ago. The couple takes care of the household responsibilities together. For five years, Elisabeth has run a business selling cell phones, hair extensions and beauty products through a distribution system. Elisabeth buys her products in Nigeria and Lomé (in Togo). This business generates revenue for Elisabeth, helping her to meet the needs of her family. This is the second time Elisabeth, together with the other members of her group, has requested a loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow Elisabeth and her group to strengthen their businesses and better respond to the demands of their customers.

In this group: Elisabeth, Fabienne, Philomène
