Gloire De Dieu 1 Group's story

GLOIRE DE DIEU 1 is a group of 23 people, whose members live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Conforte (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 49 years old and is a widow. Conforte has three children, all in school, of whom only one is still her dependent. Conforte stopped school at the secondary level.

To take care of her different responsibilities, Conforte prepares food (rice, corn paste with fish sauce) that she sells in a school in Bénin. Conforte has been practicing this business for 5 years, and buys her products in a market in Bénin. Conforte's clientèle is growing more and more. In order to raise the level of her business and to better satisfy the demands of her clientèle, Conforte is requesting, together with the other members of the GLOIRE DE DIEU 1 group, financial support from ALIDé. Conforte repaid the first loan that she received from ALIDé well.

In this group: Conforte, Baké Pascaline, Victorine, Akohouédé Léa, A. Ramatou, Bai Stephanie, Madeleine, Aichath Chantal, Elisabeth, Firmine, Angèle, Ernestine, Elyse, Marthe, Georgine Mahutin, Hounsiguè, Flore Dagbégnon, Celestine, Gloria C., Christine, Aolatou, Afiavi, Albertine
