Enagnon Group's story

The ENAGNON group is made up of three persons who live in the same neighborhood. The group representative, Denise, is the one who has her hand raised in the photo. Denise is 31 and married to a man named Olivier. Denise did not attend school. The couple have six children, all enrolled in school and under their care. Denise lives together with her husband and her children. The couple share the responsibilities of supporting the household. In order to be able to contribute to covering household expenses, for 17 years Denise has been selling cooked food (rice with sauce) in her neighborhood. This activity allows her to cater for her needs without great difficulty. She buys her supplies in a market in Bénin. Wishing to satisfy her clientele and grow the turnover in her business, Denise, together with the other members of the group called ENAGNON, is requesting a loan from ALIDé. This loan will allow them to raise the level of their businesses and grow their clientele and their revenue.

In this group: Denise , Marthe, Rachelle Blanche
