Dieu Est Grand Group's story

God is Great is a group of three people whose members live in the same house. The leader of the group, Thérèse (who has her hand raised in the photo), is 39 years old and married to a man named Pierre. Thérèse attended school very little. The couple has six children some of whom go to school at their expense. Thérèse lives with her children and her husband. They share the various expenses. To provide for their needs, Thérèse has a business selling corn flour and seasonal fruit as a secondary saleswoman at a market in Benin. Thérèse buys her stock in Benin. In order to satisfy her customers, Thérèse and the other members of the God is Great group, request a loan. This loan will enable them to better answer the needs of their clientele and to make more profit.
