Gbehigbenan 4 Group's story

GBEHIGBENAN 4 is a group composed of 16 people who all live in the same neighborhood. This is the first time that this group requests a loan from ALIDÉ, in order to increase their business. The group representative, Alice, is the one raising her hand on the picture. Alice is 53 and is married to a man named Nicolas. They have five children, some of whom go to school.

She buys those items in a region of Benin. In order to meet the needs of her customers as well as to increase her sales and her income, Alice along with the other members of the GBEHIGBENAN 4 group, is applying for this first loan from ALIDÉ.
