Dieu-Beni Group's story

The Dieu-Beni group has four members, who all live in the same neighborhood in Benin. The group’s representative is 33-year-old Chantal, who is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. She is married to Augustin and has three children, all of whom are at school and under her care.

Chantal did not attend school for very long, and now works selling canned goods and cereals from home. She has had this business for approximately nine years, and she gets her supplies at a market in Benin. To increase her business levels, Chantal would like to have a greater level of stock to sell, as this will allow her to meet customer demand. To do so, she and the other members of the Dieu-Beni group have requested a loan from Alidé.

In this group: Chantal , Christine, Naffissath, Hermione
