Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Wangninangbe Group's story

WANGNINANGBE is a group made up of three members who are friends. The group's representative, Inès Mahougnon, is the one raising her hand in the photo.

It is the third time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to raise the level of its activity.

Inès Mahougnon no longer lives with her husband, but she has one child who attends school and is her dependent. As she lives alone with her child, she takes care of her needs and those associated with raising her child, alone.

Inès Mahougnon never attended school. For the past eight years or so, she has been selling recharge cards from her home. She buys her goods in Togo.

Facing an increasing demand from her customers, and given the fact that her resources are limited, she can no longer meet all of her customers' needs.

Because of this and in spite of their limited means, Inès Mahougnon and the other members of the WANGNINANGBE group are jointly requesting a third loan from ALIDé. Their two previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Inès Mahougnon, Yèyinou Rolande, Gisèle
