Mignonmide Group's story

"Mignonmide" is a group of 3 people whose members live in the same village and are members of the same tontines. The group's leader, Joséphine, is the one with her hand raised in the picture and is 52 years old. Joséphine is married to Benoît. She did not go to school. The couple have 3 children, some of whom go to school. The couple live together with their children and take care of the different household responsibilities together.

Joséphine sells palm wine, corn and red palm oil from her home. She gets her supplies in the districts of Benin. This business allows her to meet her needs and those of her children without too much difficulty.

Joséphine and the other members of the "Mignonmide" group are requesting financial support from ALIDé for the 3rd time so that they can increase their working capital and buy palm nuts and palm wine, with a view to strengthening their businesses and better meeting the demands of their customers. The previous loans have been properly repaid.

In this group: Joséphine , Josèphine, Henriette
