Nounagnon Adjadji Bata Group's story

The Nounagnon Adjadji Bata group comprises 17 people and its president (the woman with the raised hand in the photo) is named Jacqueline. The group members live in the same town in Benin and belong to the same association. With the goal of increasing their working capital, this group is seeking its first loan with ALIDÉ. Jacqueline is 36 years old and married to a tailor named Charles. The couple have three children. Jacqueline lives together with her husband and children. The couple provide for the household together. To meet her needs and provide for her children, Jacqueline has run a business selling escargot in her area for six years. Secondarily, she also prepares and sells 'akassa' (a local paste made from cornstarch) in her area. Jacqueline buys her products in Benin. This first loan will certainly allow her and the other members of the Nounagnon Adjadji Bata group to raise the level of their business and increase their clientele and income.

In this group: Jacqueline, Geneviève, Mèwanoussi, Hounmè Sossi, Célestine, Lèdotindé, Rosine, Lucienne, Sidonie, Léonie, Jeanne, Viviane, Rosaline, Victoire, Jeanne, Martine, Henriette
