Dieu Seul Suffit Group's story

DIEU SEUL SUFFIT is a three-person group where the members all live in the same neighborhood.

The group representative, Généviève Akouavi (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 44 and married to a stockist named Gatient. The couple has four children (3 dependent), and all of their children went to school. Généviève Akouavi stopped attending to school in high school. Généviève Akouavi lives with her children and her husband, and she and her husband take care of the family expenses.

Généviève Akouavi has been selling fish in her region for close to 15 years. Généviève Akouavi buys her supplies in a market in Benin.

This is the third time that Généviève Akouavi and DIEU SEUL SUFFIT are asking for the financial support from ALIDé in order reinforce their working capital and better respond to the demands of their clientele. Their two previous loans have been repaid.

In this group: Généviève Akouavi, Colette Bayi, Afiavi
