Wangnignigbe Ste Rita Group's story

Wangnignigbe Ste Rita is a group made up of four people, whose president (with her hand raised in the photo) is called Christine Ayaba. The group members live in the same quarter in Benin. In order to boost their working capital, they are seeking a fourth credit from ALIDé. Christine Ayaba was born in 1949 in a town in Benin and is married to a man called Adolphe with whom she has five children, who all attend school. They have another child in their care. Christine Ayaba attended school up to secondary level.
In order to meet her family's needs, Christine Ayaba sells cereals (corn, rice and beans) and charcoal from her home. She has worked in this field for nearly ten years, and the business that she generates enables her to see to her family's various needs. She sources her goods from one of the main markets in Benin. This fourth loan will enable Christine Ayaba and the other members of the Wangnignigbe Ste Rita group to boost their business levels and to grow their customer base and revenues.

In this group: Christine Ayaba, Solange, Victoire, Dassi
