The Miwawiwe group consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of this group, named Lokossi Tangni, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. This is the seventh time that this group is requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to raise the level of their business.

Lokossi Tangni is 55 years old and is married to a repairman named Antoine. The couple has three children all in school of whom one is still their dependent. Lokossi Tangni lives together with her husband and her dependent child and takes care of the diverse family responsibilities together with her husband. Lokossi Tangni did not go to school.

For fifteen years Lokossi Tangni has been preparing food (corn dough accompanied by sauce, etc.) which she sells in a market of Bénin. At the same time as this business, Lokossi Tangni sells corn and local drink. Lokossi Tangni gets her supplies in a market of Bénin.
