Gold Group's story

GOLD is a group of three persons living in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Odile (seen in the photo with her hand raised) is 48 years old. She is married to a man named Emile. The couple have three children they are responsible for, all of whom attend school. The family live together and the parents take care of the diverse household expenses. In order to pay for these expenses, Odile sells a variety of products (corn, rice, etc) as well as condiments and peanut oil. She has been doing this for four years, selling from her home. In order to increase the number of sales and to be more competitive in the market, she would like to increase the number of products she has available to sell, and thus increase her revenues. She is asking for a fifth loan from ALIDE along with the other members of the group GOLD. All previous loans were reimbursed in a timely manner.

In this group: Odile , Afiavi Julienne, Eugenie Kossiba
