Benediction Ii Group's story

Benediction II is a 14-people group, whose members all reside in the same district in Benin. The group's representative, Francoise (who is raising her hand in the picture) is 40 years old; she is married to a shopkeeper named Vincent. The couple has three children, who all go to school. In addition to their children, the couple supports another child. Francoise and her husband live together with their children and take care of them together. Francoise left school in middle school.
