La Gloire De Dieu Group's story

The group GLOIRE DE DIEU (Glory of God) consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is Aimée, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Aimée, age 56, is married to a man named Alain. The couple have three children, two of them still in their care. All three children have received schooling. Aimée lives with her husband and children, and the couple handle the household responsibilities together. Aimée attended university.

In order to deal with the family expenses, Aimée started selling various products from her home seven years ago including fabrics, mobile phone recharge cards and plastic wares. She buys her merchandise at a market in Benin.

To meet the needs of a growing customer base and to increase her profits, Aimée is seeking a third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group GLOIRE DE DIEU. Past loans were repaid without incident.

In this group: Aimée , Vincent, Yolande Immaculée Clodiane
