Gbehigbenan 3 Group's story

GBEHIGBENAN 3 is a group of eleven persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Affi Marthe (with her hand raised in the photo), is 37 years old and married to Aristide. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. Affi Marthe lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly ensure that the household expenses are covered. For this reason, Affi Marthe has been selling food (rice, polenta) and various other products in the region for ten years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin

With the goal of bolstering her business, Affi Marthe is joining with the other members of the group to request a third ALIDé loan. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Affi Marthe, Sêgbé N'kpin Akouavi, Pauline, Julienne, Hélène, Clémentine, Alice, Thérèse, Kobilé Sophie Brigitte, Wossilatou, Mathilde Dohoué
