Dieu Est Grand Group's story

The "Dieu est Grand" group comprises three people who live in the same house. The leader of the group, named Colette Titiola, is the woman whose hand is raised in the photo. Colette Titiola is 53 years old. She is a widow and has four children, all in school and in her care. Colette Titiola lives alone with her children and provides for them by herself. She has had a little bit of schooling. For close to 16 years, Colette Titiola has run a business selling various food items (maize, yams) at her home and through the distribution system. This business allows her to meet the needs of her family without too much difficulty. With the hope of better responding to her customers' needs, Colette Titiola wants to strengthen her business. She is seeking a loan with ALIDÉ together with the other members of the Dieu est Grand group. This loan will allow them to raise the level of their businesses and earn more profits.

In this group: Colette Titiola, Aïcha, Soubérath
