Tout Est Grace Group's story

TOUT EST GRACE Group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. For the second time, the members of this group are seeking financial support from Kiva's partner, ALIDé, in order to bolster their businesses.

The group's representative is named Sylviane Laurencia. She's the one raising her hand in the photograph. She's 44 years old and married to one Achille. Together, they have three school-attending children whom they have to support.

To provide for herself and her children, Sylviane Laurencia has been selling vegetable oil through the distribution system for twenty years. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin.

Eager to satisfy her clientele and in order to increase her revenue and profit, Sylviane Laurencia, together with the other members of her group, is seeking a second loan from ALIDé. The first one was repaid without problems.

In this group: Sylviane Laurencia, Isabelle O., Véronique
