Gbenonkpo Sourou Group's story

Gbenonkpo Sourou is a group of 5 people who all live in the same area. The representative of the group, Sahawath (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 38 years old and is married to a driver named Aziz. The couple has 3 children, all still under their care. Some of the children have been to school. Sahawath lives together with her husband and children. Together the couple takes care of the different household expenses. Sahawath did not go to school.

For about 20 years, Sahawath has been selling soap and canned drinks in a market in Benin.

This is the sixth time that Sahawath and the other members of the Gbenonkpo Sourou group are asking for financial support from Alidé to increase their business and working capital and to better respond to the demands of their customers. Their previous loans have all been repaid.

In this group: Sahawath , Nima, Falilatou, Agbalè, Henriette
