Nonvignon 2 Group's story

NONVIGNON 2 is a group of 14 people, whose members live in the same neighborhood in Bénin. The representative of the group, Olive Colette (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 40 years old. Olive Colette is married to a certain Ange. The couple has four children who are all in school and under their care. Among the children, three are their own children. The couple live together with the children and take care of the different needs of the household together. Olive Colette stopped school at the secondary level.

For almost 10 years Olive Colette has been managing a business selling fabric and haberdashery items from her home and in her workshop. Olive Colette practices this business with passion, which allows her to meet her needs. Olive Colette gets her supplies in a market in Bénin. In seeking to satisfy her clientèle, Olive Colette is requesting a third loan with the other members of the NONVIGNON 2 group. This loan will serve to better respond to the demands of their clientèle and to make more profit for themselves. The previous loans were well repaid.

In this group: Leontine, Olive Colette, Severine, Gisele, Bernadette, Tohossi, Pascaline, Bernadette, Adele, Bernadette, Viwoutou Justine, Célestine, Chantal, Aimée
