Simagnikinto Group's story

The Simagnikinto group is composed of 3 people who all live in the same district and perform revenue-generating activities.

The group's representative, Virginie (who has her hand raised in the picture), is 29 years old and married to a blacksmith called Basile. The couple have 3 dependent children who all attend school. Virginie lives with her children and husband and together they share the household responsibilities. Virginie has been selling food produce for almost 10 years from her home in Benin. She gets her supplies in one of the country's markets.

This is the 4th time that Virginie and the other members of the Simagnikinto group request ALIDé's financial support, so that they can strengthen their working capital and their businesses, and better respond to customer demand. Their previous loans have been correctly repaid.

In this group: Virginie , Mahudjro, Pélagie
