Deo-Gratias Group's story

The Deo-Gratias group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, whose name is Seraphine, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Seraphine is 31 years old and married to a certain Victorin. Seraphine did not go to school. The couple has four children, of whom some go to school and all are under their care. Seraphine lives together with her husband and children. The couple shares the household expenses.

To contribute to her various family needs, Seraphine has been selling corn and fish from her home for ten years. She procures her goods from a market in Benin. This business allows her to meet her [family's] needs without much difficulty. In the quest for customer satisfaction and to increase her sales and earnings, Seraphine is asking, together with the other members of the Deo-Gratias group, for a fourth loan with Alide. Their previous loans have all been repaid correctly.

In this group: Séraphine, Adjoua Bernadette, Marie
