Gbedokpo 1 Group's story

The GBEDOKPO 1 group is made up of 11 members who live in the same neighborhood. It is the second time that the group is requesting financial support from ALIDé. Grâce, the facilitator of the group, is raising her hand in the photo. She is 45 years old and married to a man named Ibrahim. The couple has three children who all attend school. Two of their children are their dependents. Grâce lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the various household expenses. To this end, and for the past 25 years, Grâce has been selling various products such as tubers and charcoal, from her home. She stocks up at a market in Benin. She is requesting a second loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the GBEDOKPO 1 group, in order to meet her customers' needs and increase her turnover and income. The first loan was well repaid.

In this group: Grâce, Aminatou, Aïcha, Zoulé, Zouera, Kokoé Christelle, Saoudath, Adjouavi Sidonie, Assiba Justine, Armande Clotilde Mintode, Zouérath
