Gbenonkpo 26 Group's story

GBENONKPO 26 is a group made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood and belong to the same savings group. The group's representative, named Adéhounlé Olivier, is the one raising his hand in the photo. It is the third time that the members of this group are requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to raise the level of their activity. Adéhounlé Olivier is 39 years old and married to a seamstress named Madeleine. They have three children, all in school and their dependents. Adéhounlé Olivier did not attend school. In order to meet his needs and to support his family, he has been working as a hairdresser for about seventeen years. He buys his hairdressing supplies in Benin and Nigeria. In order to increase his stock of products and to better meet his customers' demand, he would like to obtain a third loan, along with the other members of the GBENONKPO 26 group. Thanks to this loan, the members of the group will be able to boost the level of their activity and to meet the increasing demand from their customers.

In this group: Adéhounlé Olivier, Oluwatogni Mariette, Adiyatou Toyi
