Wangninan Group's story

The Wangninan group is composed of 27 persons who are friends belonging to the same community savings group. This is the third time that the group is requesting financial support from ALIDé, in order to expand its business. The group’s representative, by the name of Agnès, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Agnès is 44 years old and lives in Benin. She never attended school. Her husband’s name is Salomon. They have five children, all in school, and three still in their care. Agnès lives together with her husband and children and jointly with her husband supports the household. In order to provide for various family needs, for 10 years Agnès has been processing and selling palm nuts as well as cooked dishes (rice with sauce) at a school in Benin. She stocks up in her region and in a town of Benin. With the goal of meeting customer demand and increasing her sales volume and her revenues, Agnès, together with the other members of the Wangninan group, is seeking her third lon from ALIDé. This loan will surely allow them to expand their business and earn a bigger profit. The two prior loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Agnès, Sidonie, Elisabeth, Houantoungbé, Marie, Lokossi Angèle, Médéhouignon Justine, Monlougbé, Dossi, Cécile, Andréa, Suzanne, Dékinhoué, Sèdogbo, Elisabeth, Sènami, Monsoyi Anne, Sènoumè, Dansi, Paul, Houédédjan Marie, Avloukè, Victoire, Pierrette, Kpèdétin Delphine, Sègla Mathieu, Christine
