Nonvignon Group's story

The group Nonvignon is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the eighth time this group has requested financial aid from Alidé in order to increase their level of business. The representative of the group, Madina, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. Madina is 38 years old and is married to a man named Arouna. Madina did not attend school. The couple has three children under their charge, some of whom are in school. Madina lives with her husband and children. The couple share the various household responsibilities. To meet the various household needs of the family, Madina has sold food (corn, cassava root flour, and oil) for ten years in a Bénin market. This business allows her to meet her needs without much difficulty. Madina gets her supplies in a Bénin town. In the quest for customer satisfaction and to increase her revenue and income, Madina and the other group members of Nonvignon are requesting an eighth loan from Alidé. The previous loans have all been fully repaid.

In this group: Madina, Aïchatou, Pascaline
