Fifonsi Gbenandou is a group of six people, whose members live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Fidèle (whose hand is raised on the photo), is 27 years old and is married to a certain Sylvain. The couple has three dependent children, of whom some go to school. Fidèle lives together with her husband and children. The couple takes care of the different household responsibilities together. Fidèle stopped school at the primary level.

Fidèle has been selling fruit for one year. At the same time, Fidèle sells sweet potatoes and yams. Fidèle buys her products in a market of Bénin and in a region of Bénin. In order to strengthen their working capital and their business and to better respond to the demands of their clientèle, Fidèle and the other members of the Fifonsi Gbenandou group are requesting a loan from ALIDé.
