Nonvignon 6 Group's story

The NONVIGNON 6 group is made up of three members who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Gisèle Opportune, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. It is the first time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of its activity. Gisèle Opportune is 40 years old and married to a man named Patrick. They have one child who is their dependent and who goes to school. Gisèle Opportune lives with her husband and child. The couple jointly takes care of the various household expenses. Gisèle Opportune only attended school for a short period of time. For the past twenty years or so, she has been selling onions and cassava flour at a market in Benin. She buys her supplies from a market in Benin. However, the demand from her customers is increasing, and she can no longer adequately meet all their needs because of her own limited means. In view of this situation, and because of their limited resources, Gisèle Opportune and the other members of the NONVIGNON 6 group have come together to request a first loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Gisèle Opportune, Adjai Anne, Josiane
