Dieu Est Capable Group's story

"Dieu est capable" is a group composed of 3 people, whose members live in the same area of Benin. The group's representative, Afiwa Germaine (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 30 years old. Afiwa Germaine no longer lives with her husband, and is the mother of 2 children, both of whom have had schooling and neither of whom is dependent on her. She lives alone and is self-sufficient.

Afiwa Germaine did not get much schooling. She has been selling second hand clothing on the street for nearly 15 years. She works very hard, which enables her to meet her needs. Afiwa Germaine gets her supplies at a market in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, Afiwa Germaine is requesting a first loan, together with the other members of "Dieu est capable". This loan will be used to better respond to the demands of their clientèle, and to earn more profits.

In this group: Afiwa Germaine, Amélé, Adjoua Christine
