Enagnon 1 Group's story

ENAGNON 1 is a group which consists of three women who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Louise, is the one raising her hand in the photo. Louise is 33 years old and married to a man called Antonin. They have three children, all in school and their dependents. Louise lives with her husband and children and shares the household's expenses with her husband. In order to meet her needs, Louise has been selling condiments, rice and beans for the past fifteen years. She stocks up at a market located in Benin. Eager to boost her business and to meet her customers' demand, she is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé, in association with the other members of the ENAGNON 1 group. Previous loans have been duly repaid.
