Minonkpo Group's story

The group MINONKPO consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is Alexandrine, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Alexandrine, age 35, is married to a carpenter named Gabriel and they have three children who go to school. Alexandrine lives with her husband and their children in a city of Benin, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together.

Alexandrine has been selling clothing and undergarments for seven years. She conducts her sales at a market in Benin and door-to-door. She buys her merchandise in Benin. She has been collaborating with ALIDé for a long time and has repaid past loans without incident.

To strengthen her activity and meet customer demand, Alexandrine needs additional funding. To that end, she is seeking a new loan together with the other members of the group MINONKPO.
