Nonvilele Group's story

The Nonvilele group is composed of three individuals. Its leader (the one raising her finger in the photo) is Marie Monhouédé. The group members know each other because they live in the same neighborhood of Benin. With the goal of expanding their working capital, the group members are seeking a loan from Alidé. Marie Monhouédé is married. Her husband’s name is Simon. They have four dependent children, all in school. Marie Monhouédé lives together with her husband and children. The spouses jointly provide for family needs. Marie Monhouédé sells fabric out of her home and as street vendor. She stocks up in a region of Benin. She has 10 years of experience in this line of business already. This is the third time that Marie Monhouédé and her group are seeking financing from Alidé. This loan will allow Marie Monhouédé and the other members of the Nonvilele group to expand their business by enlarging their stock and increasing their customer base and their revenues. The two prior loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Marie Monhouédé, Célina, Seïmi Rosaline
