Dagbegnikin 2 Group's story

The DAGBEGNIKIN 2 group is composed of thirteen members who reside in the same Benin neighborhood. The group’s representative, Philomène, is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. With the goal of building their businesses so as to better respond to customer demand, this group is asking for financial support from ALIDé for the second time. Philomène is 52 years old and lives in Benin. She is legally married to Marcellin and has two children. Both children are their dependents and are in school. The couple takes care of the household expenses together. Philomène didn’t attend school. To provide for the family’s needs, she sells palm oil from her home. Philomène gets her supplies at a market in Benin. Philomène and the other members of the DAGBEGNIKIN 2 group are requesting a second loan from ALIDé to build their businesses and better satisfy their customers. Their ambition is to grow their businesses.

In this group: Bernadette, Paulette, Béatrice, Séraphine Mènakpon, Félicienne, Cica Marguérite, Martine, Ablawa, Sèna, Madelène, Pélagie, Souliath Angèle, Philomène
