A loan of $450 helped a member to buy firewood and corn.

Minandjangodo Group's story

MINANDJANGODO Group is made up of three women who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Victoire, is the one raising her hand in the photograph.

Victoire is 50 years old and a widow. She has four children that she has to support. Some of them go to school. Victoire herself never attended school. For sixteen years, she's been selling firewood and corn at her home, a business which enables her to provide for her family without much difficulty.

She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. Eager to better satisfy customers' needs, she wishes to bolster her business. In order to do so, Victoire and the other members of MINANDJANGODO Group are seeking a second loan from Kiva's partner, ALIDé. The previous loan was repaid without problems.

In this group: Victoire, A. Véronique, Odette
