Wanou Group's story

Wanou is a group of two people who are friends and who live in the same neighbourhood. The leader is called Rolande (the one with her hand raised in the photo), she is 34 years old and did not go to school. Rolande is married to a man called Laurent. They have three children, all of whom go to school at their expense. Rolande lives with her husband and their children. The couple shares the family expenses. In order to manage this, Rolande has been selling toothpaste and vegetable brushes from home and by delivery for ten years. Hoping to strengthen her business and satisfy the demand of her clientele, Rolande and her friend request a second loan from Alidé. The previous loan was correctly repaid.

In this group: Rolande , B. Angèle
