Nonvignon 1 Group's story

The "Nonvignon 1" group is made up of 3 people who are friends and who all live in the same area in Benin. This is the first time that this group requests financial support from ALIDé, in order to increase their level of business.

The group's representative, Denagni Pierrette, is the one with her hand raised in the picture. Denagni Pierrette is 38 years old and married to a driver called Rémi. Denagni Pierrette did not go to school. The couple are raising 4 children who all go to school. Denagni Pierrette and her husband both take care of the various family expenses. Denagni Pierrette has been selling fried yams at her home for nearly 15 years. She gets her supplies in her area.

Denagni Pierrette is requesting a first loan, together with the other members of the "Nonvignon 1" group, in order to satisfy her customers and increase her revenue.
