Gbetoenomon Group's story

GBETOENOMON is a group made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood.

The representative of the group, Akouavi Sylvie (raising her hand in the photo), is 37 years old and married to a mechanic named Ferdinand. The couple has two children, both in school and their dependents. Akouavi Sylvie lives with her husband and children and takes care of the various household expenses along with her husband.

She has been selling rice, beans and condiments in her own neighborhood for close to thirteen years. She buys her goods at a market in Benin.

It is the third time that Akouavi Sylvie and the other members of the GBETOENOMON group are requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to strengthen their working capital and their business, and to better meet their customers' needs. Their two previous loans have been well repaid.

In this group: Akouavi Sylvie, Justine, Justine
