Wangninagbe 5 Group's story

The group called WANGNINAGBE 5 is made up of three persons who are part of the same association of artisans. It's the third time that this group has requested financial aid from ALIDé, in order to expand the level of their activities. The representative of the group, Danton Pierre, is the one raising his hand in the photo.

Danton Pierre did not attend school. He is 39 and married to a merchant named Pierrette. The couple have four children, all enrolled in school and in their parents' care. Besides their biological children, the couple have three other children in their care.

Danton Pierre lives together with his wife and children. The various household expenses are catered for by the couple. To manage his share, Danton Pierre has been working n his sewing workshop for almost 18 years. Wishing to add to his work equipment so that he can keep up with his ever-growing clientele, Danton Pierre is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of the group called WANGNINAGBE 5. This loan will surely allow them to raise the level of their businesses and make more profit. Their first two loans have been correctly reimbursed.

In this group: Danton Pierre, Marcel, Djimon Armende
