Dieu Est Grand 1 Group's story

The Dieu Est Grand 1 group is made up of three people, who all live in the same area and belong to the same socio-cultural group. The representative of the group, Justine Edwige (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 36 years old and is married to a certain Dorothe. The couple has three children, who go to school and are under their parents' care. Justine Edwige lives together with her child who is still her dependent and husband. Together the couple takes care of the various family expenses.

In order to feed her family, Justine Edwige sells disposable cutlery and other goods at a market in Benin. She procures her goods from Lome in Togo.

This is the third time that Jusine Edwige has sought a loan with Alide with the other members of the Dieu Est Grand 1 group. This loan will allow them to strengthen their businesses and better satisfy their customers. Their previous loans have all been repaid correctly.

In this group: Justine Edwige, Blandine, Médéya Cendra
