Saint Antoine De Padou 1 Group's story

The Saint Antoine de Padou 1 group is made up of 8 people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the fourth time that the group is requesting a loan through ALIDé, in order to raise the level of their business. The representative of the group is Honorine, and she is pictured with her hand raised in the photo. She is 35 years old and married to a man named Toussaint. Together they have four children, some of whom attend school and all of whom they support. Honorine lives with her husband and children, and together the couple is responsible for the household expenses. In order to care for the various household needs, Honorine has been preparing and selling food (corn dough with fried fish) in a market in Benin for the last 7 years. This business produces significant earnings. She stocks up in a market in Benin. In order to satisfy her customers and to increase her business and revenue, Honorine, together with the other members of Saint Antoine de Padou 1, is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé. Their previous loans were all fully repaid.

In this group: Honorine, Gabrielle, Jeanne, Kai Rosaline, Estelle, Virginie, Sakété Yvette, Sènan Monique Sabine
