Nonvitcha Group's story

The group NONVITCHA is comprised of three persons who live in the same district in Benin. The group's representative, Jeanne, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. Having the goal of boosting their business, so as to cope better with the demands of their customers, the members of this group are requesting financial aid from ALIDé for the seventh time.

Jeanne never attended school. She is 54 years old and a widow with eleven children, some of whom are in school. Among the children, six are still supported by her. To help meet the needs of the family, Jeanne has been running a business for over thirty years selling charcoal and shrimp out of her home but also at a market in Benin. She gets her supplies of shrimp from lakes in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering their business and satisfying their customers further, Jeanne and the other members of the group NONVITCHA are requesting a seventh loan from ALIDé. Their ambition is to increase their level of business.

In this group: Jeanne, Josephine, Yeyinou
