Gbenonkpo Group's story

The Gbenonkpo group is made up of four people who live in the same area.

Bernadette, the representative of the group, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 54 years old and is married to a carpenter named Nicolas. The couple has four children, of whom two are under their care. All the children go to school. Bernadette lives together with her husband and children.

To meet the needs of her family, Bernadette has been selling food (rice, beans, pasta, corn, condiments, sauces) from her home for fifteen years. She procures her goods from a market in Benin.

In order to increase her business and better respond to customer demand, Bernadette wishes to receive financing from Alidé, together with the other members of the Gbenonkpo group.
