Une Femme De Plus Group's story

UNE FEMME DE PLUS is a group consisting of five people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group by the name of Monique (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 47 years old. Monique is married to a certain Marc. The couple has five children, all in school and under their care. Monique lives together with her children and her husband and takes care of the household responsibilities together with her husband. Monique stopped school at the secondary level. To take care of her different responsibilities, Monique has been managing a business selling baskets and mats as a travelling saleswoman in Bénin for about 10 years. Monique gets her supplies in a market of Bénin. With the goal of better meeting the demands of her increasing clientèle and to make more profit, Monique is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the UNE FEMME DE PLUS group. The previously received loans were well repaid.
