Elavagnon Group's story
Elavagnon is a group of fifteen members, and its president (with her hand raised) is Zénabou. The group's members live in the same neighborhood in Benin. To increase working capitA., the group is seeking its first loan through Alidé. Born in 1982 in Benin, Zénabou lives with her children in a city in Benin. Zénabou no longer lives with her husband. She supports five children, four of whom are her own. All of the children are in school. She lives with her children and supports them alone. Zénabou has little schooling. Zénabou sells cooking utensils in a city in Benin. This business generates revenue for her, helping her to meet her children's needs. Zénabou buys her products in Ghana, a country bordering Benin. This first loan will surely allow (?) and other members of the Elavagnon group to build their businesses and increase their client base and their income.
