Nonvignon Group's story

NONVIGNON is a group made up of three women who live in the same neighborhood.

Blandine (raising her hand in the photo) is the group's representative. She is 39 years old and married to a man named Maximin. The couple has five children, some of whom attend school. Only three of their children are still their dependents. Blandine lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the household expenses.

Blandine has been selling sachets of PUR (water purifier powder), rechargeable phone cards and other items, from her home, for the past seventeen years. She stocks up at a market in Benin.

This is the second time that Blandine and the other members of the NONVIGNON group are requesting financial support from ALIDé in order to boost their working capital and their activities, and to better meet their customers' demand. Their first loan was well repaid.

In this group: Blandine , Léticia Morènikè, Zongbossi
