Dieu Est Grand Group's story

DIEU EST GRAND is a group of three people. The members live in the same area in Benin. The representative of the group, Abla Victorine (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 37 years old. Abla Victorine is married to a man named Marc and is a mother of three children, all in school and in the couple's care. Abla Victorine lives together with her husband and children. The couple provides for the various household expenses together. Abla Victorine stopped school at the primary level. To cope with her various expenses, Abla Victorine has sold food crops (rice, corn, etc.) and liqueurs secondarily from her home, but also through a distribution system, for seven years. Abla Victorine stocks up in a market in Benin. Seeking to satisfy her customers and with an eye to enlarging her business, Abla Victorine is asking for a fourth loan from Alidé, together with the other members of the group DIEU EST GRAND. This loan will be used by them to better respond to their customer's demands and to make more profits. Their previous loans were repaid.

In this group: Abla Victorine, Prisca, Angèle
