Gbenagnon Group's story

The group GBENAGNON is comprised of four persons who live in the same district. This is the fourth time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, named Nicole, is the one in the photo with her hand raised.

Nicole is 32 years old and lives in Benin. She did not attend school. She is married to a tailor named Laurent. They have two children, both in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children.

The couple jointy ensure that the diverse family expenses are covered. To do so, Nicole has been selling fruit for about six years at a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her income, Nicole along with the other members of the group GBENAGNON are requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé. The first three loans were indeed repaid.
