Gbenonkpo (Tori Bossito) Group's story

The group GBENONKPO (Tori Bossito) is comprised of eighteen persons who belong to the same work group. The group's representative, by the name of Josiane, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 44 years old and a widow. She has three children, all in school. Two of the children are in her care.

Josiane did not go to school. For 26 years, she has sold cloth which enables her to cover her diverse expenses and those of her children. She gets her supplies in a city in Benin and resells the goods at a transit station in Benin.

This is the second time that Josiane and the other members of the group GBENONKPO (Tori Bossito) have requested a loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to bolster their business in order to respond better to the demands of their customers. The first loan was indeed repaid.

In this group: Josiane, Perpétue, Célestine, Joséphine, Régina, Christine, Agnès, Léonie, Aline, Paulette, Véronique, Albertine, Martine, Geneviève, Monique, Mireille, Sylvie, Lucie
