L’Heure De Dieu Group's story

The L'HEURE DE DIEU group is made up of three women from the same neighborhood. The group representative, named Pascaline Ayaba, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 33 years old and married to a man named Georges. The couple has two children, both in school and in their care. Pascaline Ayaba lives with her husband and children and shares the family's expenses with her husband. She left school at the primary level. For two years Pascaline Ayaba has been selling clothing, shoes, and beauty products in a Benin neighborhood. She buys her products in a market in Benin and in Togo. In order to satisfy her customers and increase her sales, Pascaline Ayaba, with the other members of the L'HEURE DE DIEU group, is requesting a first loan through ALIDé.

In this group: Pascaline Ayaba, Françoise Chantal Fifamè, Massavo Clémentine
