Dieu Est Grand 9 Group's story

The DIEU EST GRAND 9 group is composed of three people who are friends and who live in the same area. This is the first time the group is seeking ALIDé's financial help in order to grow their business. The group representative, by the name of Annick Dohoué, has her hand raised in the photo. Annick Dohoué is 46 years old and left school at the secondary level. She is married to a man named Pierre. They have five children, some of whom attend school - they all live at home, in a family together.
In order to cover the family's various living expenses, Annick Dohoué has for the last ten years sold various articles (palm oil, vegetable oil etc) and condiments from her home. Annick Dohoué buys her goods in an area of Bénin. With the goal of meeting the needs of her customers and increasing her turnover, Annick Dohoué is requesting - together with the other members of the DIEU EST GRAND 9 group - a first loan with ALIDé. This loan will certainly allow them to grow their business and to make a larger profit.

In this group: Annick Dohoué, Mariam, Ingrid
