Egbelowadjou Group's story

EGBELOWADJOU is a group composed of six persons. The group's representative (the one with her hand raised in the photo) is named Gisèle. The group members live in the same district. With the goal of increasing its working capital, this group is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. Gisèle is 54 years old, a widow, and the mother of six children, not all in school with one in her care. Gisèle lives alone with her children and is by herself in ensuring their different needs are covered.

Gisèle did not go to school. To cope with family needs, she has been selling cloth and a variety of other products for about twenty years via the distribution method. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. This loan will certainly enable Gisèle and the other members of the group EGBELOWADJOU to boost their businesses and to grow their customer base. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Gisèle, Angèle, Delphine M., Delphine, Alice, Lucia Soubédath
