Gbenonkpo 8 Group's story

The group "GBENONKPO 8" comprises three persons who are friends belonging to the same revolving credit association. This is the third time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé for boosting their business. The group's representative, Ogoutcheyi Elisabeth, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 56 years old and lives in Benin.

Elisabeth did not go to school. She is married to a man named Maurice. The couple have two children, both in school and in their care. Elisabeth lives together with her children and husband and ensures, along with her husband, the different household expenses are covered.

To cover her diverse expenses, Elisabeth has been selling rice dishes serviced with sauces for fifteen years at a school in Benin. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Elisabeth is requesting, along with the other members of the group GBENONKPO 8, a third loan fro ALIDé. The two loan received previously were indeed paid back.

In this group: Ogoutcheyi Elisabeth, Alaba Augustine, Augustine Midimahu
