Gbenonkpo 11 Group's story

The "Gbenonkpo 11" group is made up of 3 people who live in the same area. The group's leader, Julienne, is the one with her hand raised in the picture. This is the 2nd time that the group requests financial support from ALIDé in order to increase their level of business.

Julienne is 41 years old and is married to Zountegni. The couple are responsible for 5 children, 4 of whom are their own. All the children go to school. Julienne did not go to school. She has been selling clothing and creams on the street for about 20 years in order to provide for her own needs and cover the family expenses. Julienne gets her products in a town in Benin.

In order to increase her inventory of products and better respond to her customer demand, Julienne wishes to obtain a second loan, together with the other members of the "Gbenonkpo 11" group. This loan will enable them to increase their business levels and deal with the growing demand of their clientèle.

In this group: Julienne, Collette, Henriette
