Nonvignon 2 Group's story

NONVIGNON 2 is a group made up of sixteen people all living in the same neighborhood in Benin. This is the second time that the group has requested a loan through ALIDé, in order to increase their business activity and better respond to their customers' needs. The group representative, named Bernadette, has her hand raised in the photo. Bernadette is 53 years old and lives in a city in Benin. She is a widow with two children, both of whom have had an education, and one of whom is still under her care. Bernadette lives with the child still under her care and pays for all his expenses.

Bernadette had very little formal education. For about twenty years, she has been selling different types of fabric through a distribution system. This business has helped her to meet her expenses and those of the child still under her care. Bernadette buys her stock in a market in Benin. This loan will help her and other members of the NONVIGNON 2 group to grow their businesses and increase their profits and income.

In this group: Bernadette, Leontine, Olive Colette, Severine, Gisele, Bernadette, Tohossi, Pascaline, Julienne, Bernadette, Adele, Bernadette, Viwoutou Justine, Célestine, Chantal, Aimée
