Wologuede Group's story

WOLOGUEDE group is made up of twelve persons who run practically identical businesses and live in the same village. This is the second time that the members of the group are seeking financial support from Kiva's partner, ALIDé, in order to bolster their businesses.

The group's representative, named Victoire, is the one raising her hand in the photograph. She's 38 years and lives in Benin. She's married to one Emile, and the couple has one school-attending child to support.

Victoire lives together with her husband and her child. The couple takes care of the various household expenses together.

Victoire never attended school. In order to provide for her family, she's been selling onions in her region for eight years. As a secondary business, she also sells palm oil and chicken. She gets her supplies in one of Benin's towns.

Eager to satisfy her clientele and in order to increase her revenue and income, Victoire, together with the other members of the group, is seeking a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was repaid without problems.

In this group: Victoire, Cathérine, Victoire, Bernadette, Micheline, Pauline, Géradine, Viviane, Odile, Zita, Jinette, Wilfried
