Gbenonkpo 30 Group's story

The Gbenonkpo 30 Group is made up of three people who earn their income in the same way and belong to the same tontine group. The representative of the group, Philomène, is pictured here with her hand raised. This is the third time that the group has asked for financial support through ALIDé with the goal of raising their level of business.

Philomène is 33 years old and married to a farmer named Joackim. The couple has two children, both of whom are dependents and one is attending school. The couple both provide for the family. Philomène has not attended school.

For the past decade, Philomène has run a business processing palm nuts and selling cassava flour in a region of benin. This has allowed her to respond to the needs of her family without any major difficulties. Philomène stocks up at a market in Benin.

With the challenge of better responding to the demands of her clientele, Philomène, along with the other members of the Gbenonkpo 30 Group, is asking for a third loan via ALIDé. The previously issued loans were properly repaid.

In this group: Philomène, Bernadette, Josephine
