Minonkpo 1 Group's story

MINONKPO 1 is a group made up of three people and whose representative (who has his hand raised in the photo) is named Gbassou Félix. The members of the group are friends and work in similar businesses. With the goal of increasing their working capital, this group is asking for the first time, for a loan from Alidé. 37 years old, Gbassou Félix is married to Christine. The couple has seven children, some of whom are in school and all of whom are in their care. The couple has two other children in their care outside of their children. Gbassou Félix provides together with his wife for the different household expenses. Gbassou Félix has sold lagoon sand for three years in his area, which allows him to provide for his family's needs. Gbassou Félix stocks up in a region of Benin. This first loan will allow Gbassou Félix and the other members of the group MINONKPO 1 to raise the level of their business and increase their customer base and their profits.

In this group: Gbassou Félix, Salomon, Marouf
