Gbedokpo Group's story

The Gbedokpo group is made up of three people who live in the same area. The representative of this group, named Bernadette, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo.

Bernadette is 42 years old and is married to a man named Désiré, a merchant. The couple has seven children, who are all still under their care. Some of the children have been to school. The couple lives together with their children and together they take care of the different household expenses. Bernadette has not been school.

It has been almost 19 years that Bernadette has been selling sheep in her area. This allows her to meet the needs of her family without much difficulty. In order to better respond to the needs of her customers, Bernadette wants to increase her business. To do this, Bernadette is asking, along with the other members of the Gbedokpo group, for a second loan through Alidé. Their previous loan has been fully repaid.

In this group: Bernadette, Médéssè Antoinette, Rosine
