A loan of $2,500 helped a member to buy fruits and palm nuts.


Wangninagbe Group's story

The WANGNINAGBE group consists of fifteen members who are friends and live in the same village.

Joulienne, the group's representative, is the one raising her hand in the photo. It is the third time that the members of this group are requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of their activity and to better meet their customers' demand.

Joulienne never went to school. She is 33 years old and married to a driver named Antoine. Joulienne and Antoine have three children, some of whom attend school. All three children are their dependents. Parents and children live together, and the couple jointly takes care of the various expenses of the family.

To help provide for the family, Joulienne has been selling fruits for the past ten years or so. Additionally, she sells palm oil, which she produces at home, using palm nuts. She buys her supplies in a region of Benin.

In order to strengthen their activity and to better meet the needs of their customers, Joulienne and the other members of the WANGNINAGBE group are requesting a third loan from ALIDé. Their ambition is to increase their level of activity.

Previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Joulienne, Augustine, Carolle, Jeanne, Jeanne, Dossi, Lucienne, Bernadette, Dona, Célestine, Adounmè, Elise, Bernadette, Sizane, Gbènakpon Colette
