Nonvignon 7 Group's story

The Nonvignon 7 group is made up of three friends who live in the same district. The representative of the group, whose name is Assiba Fabrise Rose, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. She is 37 years old and, while she did not attend school, she learned the hairdressing trade. She is married to a man called Maurice and the couple has two children, who are both at school. The couple lives with their children. Assiba Fabrise Rose and her husband cover the family expenses between them. In order to do this, Assiba Fabrise Rose has, in addition to her hairdressing activity, been selling hair extensions and cosmetic products from her home for the past 20 years. She gets her supplies in one of Benin's markets. With a view to satisfying customer demand and in order to increase her turnover and income, Assiba Fabrise Rose is requesting, together with the other members of Nonvignon 7 group, a fourth loan from Alidé. The previous loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Assiba Fabrise Rose , Gbéhitin Marcelline, Iyabo Alimantou
