Emmanuela's Group's story

This group is made up of five people who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Emmanuela, is the woman raising her hand in the photograph. She never attended school. She's 34 years old and married to one Euloge.

The couple has four children, who are all in their care and go to school. Emmanuela lives with her husband and children. Together with her husband, she covers the household expenses.

To do so, Emmanuela has been selling food condiments at her home for seven years. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin. Eager to bolster her business, Emmanuela, together with the other members of the group, is seeking a first loan from Kiva's partner, ALIDé.

In this group: Emmanuela, Estelle, Michel Ange, Aubierge, Séraphine
