Gbenonkpo Tonafa 8 Group's story

The group GBENONKPO TONAFA 8 comprises eight persons who reside in the same district. This is the first time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Katia Hilda, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 33 years old and married to a man named Antoine. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. Katia Hilda lives together with her husband and children. The couple share in the different household expenses.

To help with the different household expenses, Katia Hilda sells beauty products and hair extensions door to door. This business enables her to meet her needs without much problem. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and revenues, Katia Hilda, along with the other members of the group GBENONKPO TONAFA 8, is requesting an initial loan from ALIDé. This loan will enable them to raise their level of business and grow their customer base and revenues.

In this group: Katia Hilda, Adjala, Silifatou, Monique, Ginette, Elise, Cathérine, Cathérine
