Nonvignon 1 Group's story

The NONVIGNON 1 group is made up of three individuals who live in the same neighborhood. The leader of the group, named Dédevi Clémence, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. This is the first time that this group has requested financial help through ALIDé in order to build up their businesses. Dédevi Clémence is 39 and married to a man named Paul. The couple has five children in their care, all of whom attend school. Dédevi Clémence lives with her husband and children. Together, the couple meets their various household needs. In order to fulfill her responsibilities, Dédevi Clémence has been selling cosmetic products in a Bénin neighborhood for seven years. She gets her supplies in a market in Bénin. In the hopes of further strengthening her business and to better meet the demand of her customers, she wants to increase her stock of merchandise. To do this, Dédevi Clémence is requesting, along with the other members of the NONVIGNON 1 group, an initial loan through ALIDé.

In this group: Dédevi Clémence, Ida Dopé, Hélène
