Wangnignigbe Group's story

The WANGNIGNIGBE group consists of four people who are also members of the same tontine (a group savings fund). The representative of the group is Virginie, the lady whose hand is raised in the photo. This is the group’s third time seeking financial support from ALIDé to bolster their activity.

Virginie is 46 years old and married to a man named Ferdinand. The couple have five children, all in school. Three of them are still in their care. Virginie attended high school. For the past fifteen years or so, she has been selling food products such as corn and soy from her home. She also sells fabrics as a secondary activity. She buys her merchandise in Benin.

In order to replenish her stock and better meet customer demand, Virginie is seeking a third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group WANGNIGNIGBE. Both previous loans were correctly repaid.

In this group: Virginie, Perpetue, Gabine, Kayi Josephine
