Mawunan 1 Group's story

MAWUNAN 1 is a group made up of four members who are friends. The group's representative, Nadège, is the one raising her hand in the photo. It is the second time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé in order to increase the level of its activity. Married to a man named François, Nadège is 30 years old and the mother of three children, all in school and her dependents. Husband and wife live together with their children and share the various household expenses. Nadège never attended school. For the past few years, she has been selling paste (made from maize), served with fritters. She works as an itinerant seller, and this activity allows her to meet her needs without much difficulty. She buys her supplies from a town located in Benin. To ensure the satisfaction of her customers, Nadège would like to strengthen and diversify her business. To this end, she is requesting a second loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the MAWUNAN 1 group. The previous loan was well repaid.

In this group: Nadège, Philomène, Paulette, Viviane
