Vivomingbe Group's story

The group VIVOMINGBE is composed of three persons who reside in the same district. This is the third time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost its businesses. The group’s representative, Mahinou Zividjo, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 59 years old and lives in Benin. She did not attend school. She is a widow and the mother of four children, all provided with schooling. Two of the children remain in her care.

Mahinou Zividjo lives alone with her two children to support. To ensure that the diverse family expenses are covered, she has been selling grains for about twenty years in her neighborhood. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Mahinou Zividjo, along with the other members of the group VIVOMINGBE, is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans were indeed repaid.

In this group: Mahinou Zividjo, Clarisse Jeanne, Jeanne
