Wangninangbe 1 Group's story

The WANGNINANGBE 1 group is made up of three people who live in the same house and belong to the same savings group. It is the third time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to increase their level of activity.

Nonhouégnon Séraphine is the group's representative and the woman raising her hand in the photo. She is 32 years old and married to a tailor named Roland. The couple has two children, both in school and both their dependents. In order to provide for herself and her children, Nonhouégnon Séraphine has been selling rice and fried food for about ten years, from her home. She stocks up in a city in Benin. Eager to meet her customers' needs and in order to increase her turnover and income, she and the other members of the WANGNINANGBE 1 group, are requesting a third loan from ALIDé. Their previous loans were well repaid.

In this group: Nonhouégnon Séraphine, Sonagnon Marguérite, Dagbégnon Célestine
