Nounagnon Group's story

The group NOUNAGNON comprises fifteen persons who all have revenue-generating businesses and who live in the same village. This is the second time this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé to boost their business. The group's representative, Lucie Constance, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 40 years old and married to a man named Justin. Lucie Constance is the mother of four children, all in school. One of the children is in her care. The diverse household expenses are covered by the couple. To do so, Lucie Constance runs a business selling various goods (pineapple, cassava flour) in Benin. Secondarily, she sells food (rice, polenta) in her district. She has been in this business for about twenty years and gets her supplies in Benin. Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her revenues, Lucie Constance, along with the other members of the group NOUNAGNON, is requesting a second loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Lucie Constance, M. Elisabeth, Sévérine, Félicienne, Justine, Jocelyne, Cathérine, Micheline, Agossi Noélie, Philomène, Agnès, Marie, Huguette, Agnès, Madina
