Volonte De Dieu Group's story

"Volonté de Dieu" is a group comprising three people, all of whom are friends who have known each other since childhood. The group leader, Isabelle (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 42 years old. Isabelle is married to a man named Athanase. The couple have five children, all of whom are in their care and attend school. Isabelle lives together with her husband and children. The couple provide for the household together. Isabelle ended her studies in primary school. To meet her various expenses, Isabelle has sold various items (canned goods, soap, rice) and fabric for ten years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying her clientele and expanding her business, Isabelle is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDÉ, along with the other members of the Volonté de Dieu group. This loan will allow them to better respond to the demands of their customers and to earn higher profits. The three previous loans were all repaid properly.

In this group: Isabelle , Ayaba Isabelle, Adama
