Nonvignongbe Group's story

The Nonvignongbe group is made up of nine people who all live in the same neighborhood. Bai Petronille (whose hand is raised in the photo) is the representative of the group. Bai Petronille is 55 years old and did not go to school. She is a widow with one child, who goes to school and is still under her care. Bai Petronille lives alone with her child and is responsible for supporting their needs.

To do this, Bai Petronille has been selling condiments and other goods from her home and by a distribution method for ten years. She procures her goods from a Benin market.

In order to increase her business, Bai Petronille has joined with the other members of the Nonvignongbe group to seek their third loan with Alide. Their previous loans have all been repaid correctly.

In this group: Baï Pétronille , Martine Sylvie, Justine, K. Léontine, Victoire, Kuavi Claudine, Sètondé Mauricette, Colette, Jeanne
