Wangnigninan Group's story

The WANGNIGNINAN group comprises four women who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Firmine, is the one raising her hand in the photo.

Firmine only attended school for a short period of time. She is 46 years old and married to a man named Omer. The couple raises four children, all in school and their dependents. Out of these four children, three are their own.

Firmine lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the family's expenses.

For almost 15 years now, Firmine has been selling ice boxes and fabrics from her home, through the distribution system. Additionally, she sells kitchen utensils (dishes, forks) in order to meet her family's various needs.

She buys her goods at a market in Benin.

In order to increase her stock of merchandise, and to better meet her customers' demand, she would like to receive a fourth loan, together with the other members of the WANGNIGNINAN group.

Previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Firmine, Laurel, Sègbégnon Claire, Lydia Nicole Florence
