"les Merveilles De Dieu" Group's story

The "LES MERVEILLES DE DIEU" ["God's Marvels"] group is made up of four women from the same neighborhood. This is the third time that the group has requested financial aid through ALIDé in order to expand their business activity. The group representative, named Bénédicta, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 30 years old and lives in Benin. Bénédicta left school at the primary level. She is married to a chauffeur named Marius. The couple has three children, all in school and in their care. Bénédicta lives with her husband and children. The couple shares the various household expenses. In order to cover the family's expenses, Bénédicta has been selling shoes and clothes for five years, both at home and door to door. She buys her products in a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying her customers and to increase her sales and income, Bénédicta, along with the other members of the "LES MERVEILLES DE DIEU" group, is requesting a third loan through ALIDé. The first two loans were paid back on time.

In this group: Bénédicta , Medeme Juliette, Géraldine, Marie Madeleine
