Wangnignigbe 2 Group's story

The "Wangnignigbe 2" group is composed of 19 members who know each other given the fact that they run their businesses together in the same area. The president of this group, named Eugenie, is the one whose finger is raised in the photo. With the goal of raising the level of their businesses in order to better meet the needs of their clientele, this group is seeking its first loan through ALIDÉ (one of Kiva's field partners).
Eugenie was born on 7 February 1982 in Comè, Benin. She is married to a welder named Désiré and has two children. both of whom are in school. In addition to her own children, Eugenie has one other child in her care. Close to five years ago, Eugenie and her family settled in Ouèdo, in the town of Abomey Calavi. For three years, Eugenie has been preparing food (maize paste accompanied by fish sauce, rice, etc.) that she sells at her restaurant in Ouèdo. This business generates an income that helps her provide for herself and her children. Eugenie buys her goods at Dantokpa, the international market in Benin, and sometimes at the Cococodji market. With the goal of strengthening her business and better satisfying her clientele, Eugenie, along with her fellow group members, is seeking a loan through ALIDÉ. Her ambition is to make her restaurant a landmark in the arrondissement of Ouèdo.
