Nonvignon C1 Group's story

The NONVIGNON C1 group consists of three members who live in the same neighborhood.

The group's representative, Rose-Claire, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. She is 41 years old and married to a man named Félicien. Rose-Claire and her husband have four children, all in school and all their dependents. Rose-Claire has attended school up to the secondary level and lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the various household expenses.

Rose-Claire has been selling fabrics and shoes from home and through the distribution system, for almost twenty years. She buys her goods at a market in Benin.

It is the fourth time that Rose-Claire and the other members of the NONVIGNON C1 group are requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to boost their working capital and their activity, and to better meet their customers' demand. Previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Rose-Claire, Jocelyne Isbath Sidonie, Lawolatou Awélé
