Dieu Merci Group's story

Safoura is 55 years of age, and is married to a farmer. Despite her age, she has not slowed things down and still works selling soybeans, corn and sesame. She began selling goods in 2005 and works in Sokodé, where she also gets her supplies. Safoura has requested her third loan from WAGES to buy merchandise. She also wants to make sure her needs are covered, as well as to make her business more prosperous. She is part of a women-only group, and the other members are specialized in the sale of charcoal, fritters, cereals and local drinks. They want to see their families get ahead, as well as to help their husbands with the household expenses.

In this group: Safoura, Clarice, Ebéyo, Azétou
