Grâce De Dieu Group's story

The Grace of God group is made up of four people from the same neighborhood. The representative, named Symplice Codjo, has his hand raised in the photo. Symplice Codjo is 41 years old and left school at the primary level. He is married to a woman named Léa and the couple has four children, all in school and under their care. Symplice Codjo lives with his wife and children, and the couple share the household expenses. To meet their expenses, he cultivates various food products (cabbage, carrots, vegetables), which he sells in the area. He has been in this business for almost 15 years. Symplice Codjo buys his supplies at a market in Benin. With the goals of strengthening his business and better responding to his customers' needs, he would like to increase his stock. To do this, he and the other members of the Grace of God group are requesting a loan through ALIDé.

In this group: Symplice Codjo, Sègbé Franck, Josephine Bai, Florence
