Nonvignon Group's story

NONVIGNON Group is made up of three persons who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Yévèdo Félicienne, is the one raising her hand in the photograph.

This is the second time that the members of this group are seeking financial support from Kiva's partner, ALIDé, in order to bolster their businesses.

Yévèdo Félicienne, age 32, is married to one Étienne. The couple has one school-attending child to support. Yévèdo Félicienne herself didn't attend school.

In order to provide for herself and ensure the family expenses are covered, she's been selling bottles and plasticware for about fifteen years in one of Benin's market.

She gets her supplies from neighborhoods and towns in Benin. In order to bolster her product stock and better meet customer demand, she would like to obtain a second loan with the other members of NONVIGNON Group.

This loan will enable them to bolster their businesses and meet an ever-increasing customer demand.

In this group: Yévèdo Félicienne, Celestine, Rosaline
