Esperance Group's story

The group Esperance is made up of 4 members who all belong to the same team of craftspeople.

Honorine, whose hand is raised in the picture, is the group's representative. Honorine no longer lives with her husband and is raising a child who attends school. She herself left school during her secondary education and learnt how to be a decorator.

In order to be able to meet her needs and cover the various expenses for her child, Honorine has been a practising decorator for about 12 years. She also has a sideline business selling bags of rice and drinks in front of her studio. She gets her supplies in Benin.

Honorine and the members of the Esperance group are seeking financial support from ALIDé in order to better satisfy customer demand and increase their business. The loan will enable them to buy new stock, strengthen their business activity and better meet their customers´ needs.

In this group: Honorine, Clément, H. Félix, Serge
