Grâce à Dieu Group is a group of three people, the members of which live in the same neighborhood in Benin. The group's representative, Abiba (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 44 years old. Abiba is married to a man by the name of Hubert. The couple has five children, all of them attending school and in the couple's care. The couple lives together with the children and together sees to the various household needs.

Abiba did not attend school. For nearly the past five years, Abiba has been selling condiments, beans and rice in her area. At the same time, she sells school supplies. Abiba undertakes her business with passion, which allows her to meet her needs. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin. In pursuit of customer satisfaction, Abiba is seeking her first loan with the other members of the Grâce à Dieu Group. This loan will allow them to better meet customer demand and to turn a greater profit.
