Dagbegnikin 2 Group's story

The Dagbegnikin 2 group comprises 19 people and its president (with the raised hand in the photo) is named Bernadette. The group members live in the same area in Benin. With the goal of increasing their working capital, this group is seeking its first loan through ALIDÉ. Bernadette is 41 years old and married to a carpenter named Marcellin. The couple have three children, all of whom are in their care and attend school. Bernadette and her husband provide for the family together. For about six years, Bernadette has run a business selling fruit and cereals at her house and also through the local distribution system. She gets her products in Benin. This first loan will certainly allow Bernadette and her group Dagbegnikin 2 to raise the level of their business and increase their clientele and income.

In this group: Bernadette, Paulette, Béatrice, Seraphine Mènakpon, Félicienne, K. Cyrille, Cica Marguérite, Pélagie, Mahinou, Martine, Ablawa, Sèna, Madelène, Elisabeth, Pélagie, Souliatou, Philomène, Tikpon Calixte, Nourou Dine
