Exauce De Dieu Group's story

EXAUCE DE DIEU Group is made up of three people who live in the same house. The group's representative, named Rouyakatou, is the one raising her hand in the photograph. She's 25 years old and never attended school. For about ten years, Rouyakatou has been selling various items (sugar, milk, soaps) and condiments in her shop. As a secondary business, she also braids hair.

Rouyakatou is married to a vulcanizer named Ignace. The couple has three school-attending children, whom they have to support. Rouyakatou lives together with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the family expenses.

Rouyakatou gets her supplies in a market in Benin. Eager to satisfy her clientele and increase her revenue and income, Rouyakatou, together with the other members of her group, is seeking a fourth loan from Kiva's partner, ALIDé. Previous loans were repaid without problems.

In this group: Rouyakatou, Sènanmè Patricia, Sonia
