Nonvigbe 1 Group's story

NONVIGBE 1 is a group composed of four persons who all reside in the same geographical area of Benin. Noelie is this group’s representative. She is the one with her hand raised in the photo. She was born on August 21, 1974 in a city in Benin. She is married to man named Julien. The couple has four children, who are all in school. Two of the children are their dependents. Noelie lives together with her family. The couple jointly ensures that the various family expenses are covered.

For nearly four years, Noelie has been running a business selling grains (corn, beans, etc.), as well as cassava flour, in her district. Concurrent to this business, she sells vegetable oil and tomatoes in the same district. She purchases these goods in one of the markets of Benin. This is the third time that Noelie and her group NONVIGBE 1 have requested a loan from ALIDé. This loan will serve to bolster their businesses in order to respond better to the demands of their customers.

In this group: Noelie , Irène, Edith V., Nardine
