Pélagie Geneviève's Group's story

This group consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, named Pélagie Geneviève (the one who has her hand raised in the photo) is 49 years old. Pélagie Geneviève did not go to school. Pélagie Geneviève is married to Rodolphe. The couple has three children, all in school and under their care. Pélagie Geneviève lives with her husband and her children. The household responsibilities are taken care of by the couple. To do this, Pélagie Geneviève has been selling a variety of items (soap, oil, sugar etc.) and fabric through the distribution system for six years. Pélagie Geneviève gets her supplies in a market in Bénin. With the goal of strengthening her business, Pélagie Geneviève joined the other members of her group to request a first loan from ALIDé.
