Ganho Ii Group's story

The GANHO group is made up of 11 people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the first time that the group is seeking financial aid from ALIDé, in order to increase its business activity.

The group's representative, Louise, is the woman with her hand raised in the photograph. Louise is 56 years old and lives in Benin. She did not attend school. She is married to a man named Lokonanto. The couple has six children, three of whom remain in their care. All of their children are educated. The couple covers the various household expenses together.

In order to contribute to the various expenses, Louise has been selling various products as well as akassa (local food made from corn starch) in her region for about 12 years now. She stocks up in a region of Benin. Striving to satisfy her customers and increase her sales and revenue, Louise, along with the other members of GANHO, is seeking her first loan through ALIDé.

In this group: Louise, Appoline M., Marguerite, Justine, Solange, Cica Ida, Pièrrette, Ginette, Mélanie, Madeleine, Victorine
