Wangninan-Hinde 4 Group's story

The Wangninan-Hinde 4 Group is made up of ten people who all live in the same neighbourhood. The group representative is Régine Fidèle (with her hand raised in the photo). She is 22 years old and did not attend school. Régine Fidèle is married to Ange, a driver. The couple live with their only child who does not attend school, and together they provide for the support of their household. To do this, Régine Fidèle has sold charcoal from her home for the past year. She buys her supplies at a market in Bénin.

In order to improve her business and meet the demands of her customers, Régine Fidèle, and the other women of her group, have requested a second loan from the field partner, Alidé. The previous loan has been fully repaid.

In this group: Régine Fidèle, Jéronime Fifamè, Philomène, Philomène, Aïcha, Antoinette, Pauline, Founmi, Pauline, Solange
