Wangninan 16 Group's story

"Wangninan 16" is a group comprising four people who live together in the same area and belong to the same tontine. In order to raise the level of their business and meet their customers' demands, this group joined ALIDÉ with the goal of obtaining a loan. The group leader, Ahoudjo (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 44 years old and married to a farmer named Gbèhounou. Ahoudjo is the mother of four children, none of whom attend school. The children live together with their parents. Ahoudjo did not attend school. For about twenty years, Ahoudjo has sold palm oil and doughballs (made from corn starch) at her home. She buys her products in the area. With the goal of raising her business and better responding to the increasingly growing demand of her clientele, Ahoudjo is seeking a fourth loan with ALIDÉ along with the other members of the Wangninan 16 group. The three previous loans were repaid properly.

In this group: Ahoudjo, Clémentine, Anihouvi, Colette
