A loan of $625 helped a member to buy undergarments.


Minonkpo Group's story

The group MINONKPO is comprised of three persons who live together. This is the third time the group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, named Alexandrine, is the one in the photo with her hand raised.

Alexandrine is 34 years old and married to a furniture maker named Gabriel. They have three children, all in school and in their care. The diverse family expenses are covered by the couple. To do so, Alexandrine has been running a business selling undergarments from place to place at a market in Benin for about fifteen years. This business enables her to meet her needs and those of her children. Her supplies come from one of the markets of Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and revenues, Alexandrine and the other members of the group MINONKPO are requesting a third loan from ALIDé. The two previous loans have indeed been repaid.

In this group: Alexandrine , Sonia, Florence
