Enagnon Group's story

ENAGNON is a three-person group where all the members live in the same neighborhood.

The group representative, Gérardine (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 52 years old and is married to Albert. The couple has four dependent children, some of whom go to school. Gérardine and her husband live with their children and take care of their children's various expenses. Gérardine did not go to school.

Gérardine has been selling second-hand clothing in a market in Benin for five years. Gérardine is also a seamstress. She is passionate about her business, and this allows her to meet her children's needs as well as her own.

Gérardine buys her supplies in a market in Benin. In order to satisfy her clients and increase her working capital, Gérardine and the other members of ENAGNON are asking for a fourth loan. This loan will help them better respond to the demands of their clients and to increase profits. Their three previous loans have been repaid.

In this group: Gérardine , Jeanne, Estelle
