Dieu Est Grand Group's story

DIEU EST GRAND has three members who are all from the same neighborhood and are a part of the same savings club. The leader of the group, Edakèmi Romance (with her hand raised in the photo), is 49 years old and married to man named Bruno. They have two children with one of their children still in school. Edakèmi Romance hasn't completed much school herself. She lives with her children and husband and together they take care of all the household expenses. For the past 10 years, Edakèmi Romance has been selling shoes, jewelry and cosmetics from her home. She buys her inventory in a Benin city. This is the first time that she and the members of her group have requested a loan from ALIDE. They would like to strengthen the business' working capital in order to better respond to client demand.

In this group: Edakèmi Romance , Antoinette, Monlonde
