Gbegnon 1 Group's story

The group GBEGNON 1 is composed of three persons whose members live in the same town. The group’s representative, Diane Dossi (with a hand raised in the photo), is 34 years old and married to a man named Anasthase. The couple have two children, both in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children. She and her husband jointly ensure that the diverse family needs are met.

Diane Dossi has a primary school education, but next she learned how to style hair. This is work she has been doing with passion in her region for six years. It enables her to help meet family needs. Parallel to this work, she sells hair extensions and cosmetic products in her salon. She purchases her products at a market in Benin.

This is the seventh time that Diane Dossi and the other members of the group GBEGNON 1 have requested a loan from ALIDé enabling them to bolster their businesses and to respond better to the requirements of their customers. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Diane Dossi, Germaine, Solange
