Wangnigninan Group's story

The 3 members of the Wangnigninan group all live in the same neighborhood in Benin. The group's representative, Sidonie Micheline, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 58 years old and married to a retailer named Justin. The couple has 3 children, all of whom have received schooling, and of whom 2 are in their care. Sidonie Micheline lives together with her family in a town in Benin. Together, the couple takes care of family expenses.

Sidonie Micheline stopped her schooling at the university level. For about ten years she has been selling various items (corn, cassava flour, vegetable oil, gasoline, etc) in her neighborhood. She buys her products at one of Benin's markets.

This is the third time that Sidonie Micheline and the other members of the Wangnigninan group have asked for a loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to expand their business, so that they can better meet their customers' needs.

In this group: Sidonie Micheline, Léontine, Marie
