Wanignon Group's story

The Wanignon group is made up of thirteen people from the same neighborhood. The group representative, named Noudéhousèa, has her hand raised in the photo. Noudéhousèa is 47 years old and no longer lives with her husband. She has two children, one of whom is in school and under her care. Noudéhousèa never attended school. To meet her and her child's needs, she has been selling vegetables for 20 years. She also sells bread and palm nuts. Noudéhousèa buys her stock in a village in Benin. With the goal of increasing her business activity and better meeting her customers' needs, she is requesting, along with the other members of the Wanignon group, a first loan through ALIDé. Noudéhousèa hopes to later buy a piece of land and build on it.

In this group: Noudéhousèa, Hervera Isidora Olivia, Rose, Augustine, Kotanlé Delphine, Agossi Sidonie, Léocadie, Lydia Claire, Elisabeth, Anagonou, Gisèle, Géneviève, Odile
