Dieu Fera Group's story

DIEU FERA is a group of four persons, who reside in the same district in Benin. The group representative, Justine (with her hand raised in the photo), is 49 years old and married to a man named Constantin. The couple have two children, both in school and in their care. Justine and her husband live together with their children and jointly ensure that the different household expenses are covered. Justine dropped out of middle school.

For nearly twenty years, Justine has been running a business selling rice, fabrics, and corn in her district in Benin. She operates her business with passion. And this enables her to meet her needs and those of her children. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers, Justine along with the other members of the group DIEU FERA are requesting another loan, which will be used to respond better to the demands of their customers and to make more profits.

In this group: Justine, Chantal, Jacqueline, Blandine
