Sabine's Group's story

This group is composed of four persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Sabine (with her hand raised in the photo), is 45 years old and did not attend school. She is married to man named Sylvain. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. She lives with her husband and children.

The diverse family expenses are covered by Sabine and her husband. To do so, she has been hawking pasta, canned tomatoes, sugar, and soap, for nineteen years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. With the goal of bolstering her business, Sabine along with the other members of her group are requesting an initial loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Sabine, Alphonsine, Monique, Brigitte
