Dieu Est Grand Group's story

The group God Is Great is composed of three individuals who live in the same neighborhood. This is the first time that the group is seeking the financial assistance of Alidé, in order to increase their commercial activity. Oumè Pauline, the representative of the group, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Oumè Pauline was born in 1970 and is married to a nurse named Joseph. The couple has five children who have all gone to school and live with them. Oumè Pauline helps her husband with household expenses, thanks to the revenues from her work. Oumè Pauline has never gone to school. For twenty years, she has been selling a variety of products (soap, canned food, vegetable oil, spices, etc.) from her home. Oumè Pauline buys these products at Dantokpa, the international market in Bénin. In order to satisfy her customers and increase her income, she is seeking a loan along with the other members of her group.

In this group: Oumè Pauline, Fatima, K. Julienne
