A loan of $675 helped a member to buy native soaps.


Dieu Est Grand Group's story

DIEU EST GRAND is a group comprised of three persons whose representative (the one with her hand raised in the photo) is called Germaine. The group members are from the same family. With the goal of increasing their working capital, this group is requesting a loan for a third time from ALIDé. Germaine is 28 years old and married to Félicien, a clothier. They have five children who are all in school and in their care. She has had very little schooling. To provide for herself and her family, she has a business selling native soaps. She has been in this business for nearly ten years, and it enables her along with her husband to ensure the diverse family expenses are covered. She gets her supplies from one of the large markets in Benin. This third loan will surely allow Germaine and her whole group DIEU EST GRAND to boost their business and to increase their customer base and their revenues.

In this group: Germaine, Yémalin Cécile, Métogbé Zita
