Fifonsi-Gbenondou 3 Group's story

FIFONSI-GBENONDOU 3 is a group consisting of 10 people who live in the same neighborhood. The leader of the group, named Akouavi Françoise (the one with her hand raised in the photo) is 48 years old. Akouavi Françoise did not go to school. Akouavi Françoise is married to a fisherman named François. The couple has three children, all in school and two under their care. Akouavi Françoise lives with her husband and her children. The responsibilities of the home are taken care of by Akouavi Françoise and her husband. It's for this reason that Akouavi Françoise has been selling a variety of items (soaps, sugar, milk etc.) from home for twenty years. Akouavi Françoise gets her supplies in a market in Bénin. With the goal of strengthening her business, Akouavi Françoise joined the other members of the group FIFONSI-GBENONDOU 3 to request a first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Akouavi Françoise, Valerie, Charlotte, Yolande Anick, Christiane, Chantale Abla, Colette, Antoinnette, Bastide, Afiavi Marcelle
