Lonlongnon Group's story

The "Longlongnon" group comprises three people who live in the same area. This is the fourth time this group is seeking financial support from ALIDÉ, in order to raise the level of their business. The group representative, named Louise, is the woman whose hand is raised in the photo. Lousie is 31 years old and lives in Benin. She did not attend school. Louise is married to a carpenter named Calixte. The couple have two children, both of whom are in their care and one of whom attends school. Louise lives together with her husband and two children. The couple share in paying for the various household expenses. In order to pay for various household costs, Louise has sold hair extensions and cosmetics in her area for 16 years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying her clientele and increasing her sales volume and income, Louise is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDÉ along with the other members of the Lonlongnon group. This loan will assuredly allow them to raise the level of their business and earn larger profits. The three previous loans were all repaid properly.

In this group: Louise , Jeanne, Hélène
