Nounagnon D'akassato Group's story

The NOUNAGNON D'AKASSATO group is made up of three persons who all live in the same neighborhood in Bénin. It's the third time that this group is requesting a loan from ALIDé, so as to expand their businesses. The representative of the group, Delphine, is the one raising her hand in the photo.

Delphine, 47, is married to a retailer named Christophe. The couple has two children, both enrolled in school and living with their parents. Delphine and her husband share in supporting their family.

In order to provide for herself and improve her standard of living, Delphine has been selling various goods (tinned foods, soap, maize, etc.) for about 20 years, out of her home. She buys her supplies in Bénin. Wishing to satisfy her clientele and grow her income, Delphine is requesting a third loan, together with the others in the group called NOUNAGNON D'AKASSATO.

In this group: Delphine , Sylvie, Charlotte
