Don De Dieu Group's story

The group DON DE DIEU (gift from God) consists of fifteen members who all live in the same neighborhood. This is the group’s first time seeking financial assistance from ALIDé to bolster their activity.

The group’s representative is Ayaba Marthe, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Ayaba Marthe, age 41, lives in Benin. She never attended school. She is married to a man named Célestin. The couple have five dependent children, four of them being their own. Ayaba Marthe lives with her husband and their children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together. To that end, Ayaba Marthe sells food products, liqueurs, charcoal and cosmetic products from her home. She buys her stock locally and in a city of Benin.

To achieve customer satisfaction and to increase her sales and revenue, Ayaba Marthe and the other members of the group DON DE DIEU are seeking a first loan from ALIDé. This loan will help them to bolster their activity and boost their profits.

In this group: Ayaba Marthe, Inès Ahouéfa, Bibiane, Félicienne, Clémence, Eugénie, Zita, Béatrice, Hortense, Emilie, Colette, Cathérine, Clarice, Arsène Trinité, Essivi
