La Grâce De Dieu Group's story

LA GRÂCE DE DIEU is a group of three people whose members live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Esther (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 48-years old and married to Stanislas, a welder. The couple have five children, all attending school, two of which are their dependents. Esther and her husband live together with their children and take care of the different household expenses together. Esther stopped attending school at the secondary level. About 15 years ago, Esther started a business selling toiletries and fabric by delivery. Esther is passionate about her business which enables her to take care of her needs and those of her children. Esther stocks up at a market in Benin. In pursuit of customer satisfaction, Esther is asking for a fourth loan with the other members of the La Grace de Dieu Group. This loan will allow them to better respond to customer demand and to make more profit. The prior loans were all fully repaid.

In this group: Esther, Renia, Roucayatou
