Vivogbe Tankpe Group's story

The group VIVOGBE TANKPE comprises six persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Rosalie (with her hand raised in the photo), is 42 years old and has had little schooling. She is married to a painter named Prosper. The couple have five children, all in school and in their care. She lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly ensure that the household expenses are covered. To do so, Rosalie has been selling staple foods and various goods out of her home for eighteen years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering her business, Rosalie joined with the other members of the group VIVOGBE TANKPE to request a fourth loan from ALIDé. The previous ones were indeed paid back.

In this group: Rosalie , Grâce Jocelyne , Anastasie , Judith , Gbèdandé Carmelle Dora, Hortence
