Wangninagbe Group's story

The WANGNINAGBE group consists of 22 people who are friends from the same village. This is the second time that the group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to increase its activity level. Joulienne, raising her hand in the photo, is the facilitator of the group. She is 33 years old and lives in Benin. She never went to school. She is married to a driver named Antoine. Joulienne and Antoine have three children who all attend school and whom they financially support. The couple jointly takes care of the various household expenses. In order to contribute to these expenses, Joulienne has been selling fruits (bananas etc.) as well as processed palm nuts, in her own region, for eight years. Julienne buys her supplies in one of the regions of Benin. In order to meet her customers' needs, and to increase her turnover and income, she and the other members of the WANGNINAGBE group are requesting a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was well repaid.

In this group: Joulienne, Augustine, Carolle, Jeanne, Sènouavi, Médeyonmi, Rachel, Chadjou, Jeanne, Fifonsi, Dossi, Lucienne, Bernadette, Mètohoun, Jeanne, Oulénatou, Dona, Célestine, Adounmè, Elise, Bernadette, Sizane
