Gnonnamahouton Group's story

The group Gnonnamahouton is made up of three people who all come from the same group of artisans. The representative of the group, Sèdohouè Etienne, is the one with his hand raised in the photo. This is the third time that the group has applied for financial support from ALIDé in order to raise their level of business. Sèdohouè Etienne is married to a merchant whose name is Félicienne. The couple has five children, all of whom are in school and in the care of their parents. Besides their own children, the couple has another child in their care. Sèdohouè Etienne lives together with his wife and children, and provides for the diverse needs of his family along with his wife. Sèdohouè Etienne left school at the primary level and learned masonry, an occupation he has held for some twelve years. With the goals of a more highly satisfied customer base and revenue growth, Sèdohouè Etienne would like to acquire metal molds. To do this, Sèdohouè Etienne is requesting, along with the other members of the Gnonnamahouton group, a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans were paid back in full.

In this group: Sèdohouè Etienne, Hubert, Martin
