A loan of $500 helped a member to buy tinned goods and pasta.


Espoir Group's story

The ESPOIR group is made up of four persons who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Catherine, is the one who is raising her hand in the photo. She is 34 years old and married to an electrician named Geofroy. The couple have four children, all enrolled in school and still under their parents' care. Catherine lives together with her husband and children and helps her husband support the family.

For five years, Catherine has been selling tinned goods and pasta to contribute to covering the needs of the family. Wishing to satisfy her clientele and grow her sales, Catherine is requesting, together with the other members of the group called ESPOIR, a second loan from ALIDé. The prior loan has been correctly reimbursed.

In this group: Catherine , Ablavi Enyonam, Noellie Yvette, Rita
