Louange Group's story

The LOUANGE group is comprised of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The group representative, Alice, is the one with her hand raised in the photo.

Alice is 36 and lives in Benin. She is married to Séverin. The couple has three dependent children, and some of them go to school. Alice lives with her husband and children. Together, the couple takes care of the various household needs.

In order to take care of the various family costs, Alice sells various products (pasta, preserves, etc.), shoes, and gas in a region of Benin. Alice buys her supplies in a market in Benin.

With the goal of increasing her sales and revenue, Alice, along with the other members of the LOUANGE group, is asking for a second loan from ALIDé. The previous loan was repaid.
