Wangninangbe 1 Group's story

The Wangninangbe 1 group is made up of 3 people who are part of the same mutual funds groups. The group's representative, Sonagnon Marguerite, is the one with her hand raised in the picture. Sonagnon Marguerite is 48 years old and did not go to school. Sonagnon Marguerite is a widow and is raising 2 children. Sonagnon Marguerite lives alone with the children and takes care of the household expenses by herself. In order to do this, Sonagnon Marguerite has been selling rice, palm wine and aluminium bowls from her home for 20 years. Sonagnon Marguerite gets her supplies at a market in Benin. In order to satisfy her clientèle and increase her sales and revenue, Sonagnon Marguerite is requesting, together with the other members of the Dona AF2 group, a 5th loan from ALIDé. The previous loans have been properly repaid.
