Nonvignon Group's story

"NONVIGNON" is a group made up of three friends. Zinhoué Jeanne (who is raising her hand in the photo) is the group's representative. She is 31 years old. She stopped her studies at secondary school. Zinhoué Jeanne is married to a professor named Euloge. The couple has two children, both of whom live in their care. One of their children goes to school. Zinhoué Jeanne lives with her husband and her children. She covers the various household expenses with her husband.

To cover the various expenses, Zinhoué Jeanne runs a hair salon in a studio that she rented in her neighborhood. On the side, she sells hair extensions and cosmetic products. She has been running this business for five years now, and she stocks up at a market in Benin.

In order to meet the demand of her growing customer base and earn more profit, Zinhoué Jeanne, along with the other members of the "NONVIGNON" group, is seeking a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was paid back correctly.

In this group: Zinhoué Jeanne, Mouïnatou Ayoka Ogou, Opportune
