Wangnigni Group's story

The Wangnigni Group consists of 3 women who have known each other since they were young. They live in the Calavi district on the outskirts of Cotonou, Benin's economic center. This is their second loan with ALIDE, following successful past repayment.

Ginette (with her hand raised in the photo) is nearly 40 years old and lives with her husband, Gafari, and their 7 children, who are all schooled. For the past 3 years, Ginette has run her shop selling cosmetics supplies in Calavi. This loan will enable her to purchase additional stock from Tokpa, Cotonou's largest market, to resell at her store. She states her greatest strength as her managerial ability, and she hopes to grow her business into a large grocer.

In this group: Ginette, Julienne, Carmelle
