Agban-Lin Group's story

AGBAN-LIN is a group with three members, who all live together. The leader of the group, Honorine Julienne Cica (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 44 years old. She is a widow and has four children, three of whom are still dependent and some of whom go to school. Honorine Julienne Cica herself attended school to secondary level and it is nearly 15 years since she started her business selling yam fries from home. She does this in order to provide for her own needs and those of her children. She buys her supplies in a market in Benin. In order to improve customer satisfaction, Honorine Julienne Cica is requesting a third loan, along with the other members of the AGBAN-LIN group. This loan will help her to meet customer demand and make a bigger profit. The previous loans have all been repaid in full.

In this group: Honorine Julienne Cica, Matoudéna, A Virginie
