Noussissi Group's story

The Noussissi group comprises 13 people who know each other through their businesses and attendance at the same market, and all live in the same area in Benin. The representative of the group, named Delphine, is the one with the raised hand in the photo. Delphine is 53 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to an electrician named Vincent. The couple have four children, all in school and still in the care of their parents. To provide for herself and her family, Delphine runs a business selling jewelry and pearls. She gets her supplies at one of the markets in Benin. This is the first time Delphine and the other members of the Noussissi group are seeking a loan with ALIDÉ. This loan will allow them to strengthen their businesses in order to better respond to the demands of their clientele.

In this group: Delphine, Yvette, Fatimatou, Françoise, Albertine, Afiavi, Séléathou, Woumè, Célestine, Victorine, Josiane, Nassikindé, Odile
