Dieu Est Grand 4 Group's story

The Dieu Est Grand 4 group is made up of 3 people who live in the same district. The group's representative, Alimatou Sadia Ola, is the one with her hand raised in the picture. Alimatou Sadia Ola is 35 years old and did not get much schooling. Alimatou Sadia Ola is married to Aliou. The couple have 2 children who both attend school. Alimatou Sadia Ola lives with her children and supports her husband with the household expenses. It is for this reason that Alimatou Sadia Ola has been selling charcoal and peppers from her home for 17 years. Alimatou Sadia Ola gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With a view to satisfying her customers and increasing her sales and revenue, Alimatou Sadia Ola is requesting, together with the other members of the Dieu Est Grand 4 group, a first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Alimatou Sadia Ola, Toussaint, Françoise
