Gbenonkpo Group's story

Gbenonkpo is a group of three persons from the same neighborhood. The group representative is named Ginette (the one raising her hand on the photo) and is 30 years old.

Ginette has not attended school. She no longer lives with her husband, and is the mother of three children. All children attend (or have attended) school and two of them remain under her care. Ginette lives with her children.

With the money generated by her activity, Ginette is able to feed her family. For over ten years Ginette has been running a business selling plastic items and plastic bags in her area. As an additional activity she also sells fruit.

Ginette buys her products in one of Benin's cities. To bolster her business, she joins the other members of the Gbenonkpo group in seeking a third loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Ginette, Aïcha, Roukayathou
