Gbehigbenan Group's story

The Gbehigbenan group is made up of two people who are friends. The representative of the group, whose name is Nicole, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Nicole is 35 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to a freight broker called Sébastien. The couple has three children to support, some of whom are at school. Nicole lives with her children and husband. She and her husband cover the various household expenses between them. In order to do this, Nicole sells food products in a town in Benin. She buys her products in a Benin market. She wants her products to provide satisfaction to a greater number of customers, but does not have sufficient financial means to increase her business volume. It is for this reason that she, together with the other member of the Gbehigbenan group, is requesting a second loan from Alidé. The previous loan was repaid in full.

In this group: Nicole, Mathilde Dohoué
