Nonvignon Group's story

The NONVIGNON group consists of three members who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Akossiwa Mauriena, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. It is the fourth time that this group is requesting financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to increase the level of its activity. Akossiwa Mauriena is 29 years old and married to a photographer named Gildas. They have one child, who goes to school and is their financial dependent. Akossiwa Mauriena lives with her child and husband. The couple jointly takes care of the household needs. In order to meet her various expenses, Akossiwa Mauriena has been selling fabrics, through the distribution system, for almost eight years. She stocks up in Lomé, Togo. Eager to further strengthen her activity and to better meet the expectations of her customers, Akossiwa Mauriena would like to increase her stock of merchandise. In order to do so, she and the other members of the NONVIGNON group, are requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Akossiwa Mauriena, Akouavi, Afi Brigitte
