Gnambossou Gbeta 4 Group's story

The GNAMBOSSOU GBETA 4 group is made up of 16 people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the second time that this group is seeking financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of their activity.

Clémence, the group's representative, is the woman with her hand raised in the photo. Clémence discontinued her studies at the secondary school level. Clémence is 43 years old and is married to a man named Louis. The couple has four children, all of whom attend school and are in their care. Clémence lives with her husband and children. The couple covers the various household expenses.

To do so, Clémence has been selling corn and fabrics from her home for the past eight years. Clémence gets her supplies from the market in Benin. Striving to satisfy her customers and increase her turnover and revenue, Clémence is seeking a second loan from ALIDé along with the other members of the GNAMBOSSOU GBETA 4 group. The first loan was correctly repaid.

In this group: Raymond Ulrich, Adjoa Rachelle, Victorine, Abran Félicienne, Marie Madelaine, Frida Elisabeth, Justine, Hélène, Solange Mahugnon, Sènoudémè Pélagie, Clémence, Kaï Léontine*, Antoinette*, Amounath, Cécile, Juliette Esther
