Wangnina 7 Group's story

The Wangnina 7 group is made up of three friends who live in the same district. The representative of this group, whose name is Gilbert, is the one with his hand raised in the photo. He is 25 years old and married to a merchant by the name of Aminath. The couple has two children, both in their care and one of which is their own child. Gilbert lives with his wife and children. The couple cover the various household expenses between them. Gilbert attended school very little but learnt the refrigeration trade and has been practising this profession for a year; it procures him a non-negligible income. Apart from this, Gilbert also sends refrigerator parts. This enables him to respond to his family's needs without any great difficulty. With a view to responding better to customer demand he would like to boost his stock and increase his business volume. In order to do this he would like to obtain a first loan from Alidé, together with the other members of the Wangnina 7 group.

In this group: Gilbert, Marcellin, Lucienne
