Wangnignigbe 8 Group's story

The Wangnignigbe 8 group is made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, whose name is Zénab, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Zénab is 28 years old and did not go to school. She is married to man called Aziz. The couple has two children to support, both of whom are at school. Zénab lives with her children and husband. The couple covers the various household expenses between them. In order to do this, Zénab has been selling children's clothing, toothpaste, and fruit juices as a secondary activity, from her home and in a Benin market for almost six years. She buys her products in a Benin market. With a view to boosting her business and responding better to customer demand, Zénab would like to increase her stock. It is for this reason that she, together with the other members of the Wangnignigbe 8 group, is requesting a loan from Alidé.

In this group: Zénab, Bérétchissou, Prudencia Afiavi
