Nonvignon C2 Group's story

The group NONVIGNON C2 is comprised of two friends. This is the first time that the group is asking for financial support form ALIDé in order to grow their business.

Gisèle Sènami (with her hand raised in the photo) is the group representative. Gisèle Sènami is 41 years old and is married to a photographer named Charles. The couple has four dependent children, some of whom go to school. Gisèle Sènami did not go to school. Gisèle Sènami lives with her husband and children. Together, the couple takes care of their household needs.

In order to contribute to the various needs of the family, Gisèle Sènami has been selling cosmetics and clothes out of her home and through the distribution system for 18 years.

This business allows her to meet her needs without great difficulty. Gisèle Sènami buys her supplies in a market in Benin.

In the hope of satisfying her clients and in order to grow her sales volume and revenue, Gisèle Sènami and the other NONVIGNON C2 group member are asking for a first loan with ALIDé.
