Gbenonkpo Tonafa 5 Group's story

The group GBENONKPO TONAFA 5 comprises four persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Germaine, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 58 years old, a widow, and the mother of five children, all educated. None of the children remain hers to support. Germaine lives alone with her children and supports herself.

To support herself, Germaine sells corn and cassava flour in a district in Benin. This business enables her to meet her needs without much problem. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy his customers and to increase his sales and revenues, Germaine, along with the other members of the group GBENONKPO TONAFA 5, is requesting a loan from ALIDé. This loan will enable them to raise their level of business and grow their customer base and their revenues.

In this group: Germaine, Pierrette, Michel, Alexandrine
