Segnon Group's story

The group SEGNON is composed of three persons who are friends. This is the first time that this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé in order to boost their businesses. The group's representative, by the name of Marie Nicole, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. She is 39 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to a man named Jean Marc. They have three children who are all in school.

Marie Nicole never attended school. To support herself and her children, Sinatou has been running a business selling canned beverages for 20 years. She gets her supplies from Togo, a country neighboring Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and wanting to increase her sales and her revenues, Marie Nicole and the other members of the group SEGNON are requesting an initial loan.

In this group: Marie Nicole, Awaou, Léocadie B. Josette
