Wanyinan Group's story

The WANYINAN group is made up of three people who are related. The group representative, named Alaba Josephine, has her hand raised in the photo. This is the fourth time the group is seeking ALIDé's financial assistance in order to grow their business. Alaba Josephine is married and the mother of three children, all in school. Alaba Josephine lives with her husband and children and covers, together with her husband, the various household expenses. Alaba Josephine did not go to school. For eight years, Alaba Josephine has been a seller of plastic goods, hair extensions and coolers in her neighbourhood. Alaba Josephine buys the products in Nigeria.
With the goal of better meeting her customers' needs and increasing her income, Alaba Josephine wishes to increase her stock of products. In order to achieve this, Alaba Josephine is seeking, together with the other members of the WANYINAN group, a fourth loan with ALIDé.

In this group: Alaba Josephine, Rose, Marie
