Akouegnon 2 Group's story

The Akouegnon 2 group is made up of two people who live together. The representative of this group, who is named Dina, is 39 years old and is the one whose hand is raised in the photo. Dina is married to a Jacob. The couple has four children, all who go to school and are under their care. Dina lives with her husband and children. Together Dina and Jacob take care of their different household expenses. Nina attended school until the secondary level.

It has been almost 18 years now that Dina has been selling shoes from her home. This form of sales has allowed her to respond without great difficulty to the needs of her family. In order to better respond to the needs of her customers, DIna wants to buy shoes to increase her business. To do this, Dina is asking, together with the other member of the Akouegnon 2 group, for a second loan with Alide. Their first loan was repaid correctly.

In this group: Dina, Bougnon Mariam
