Wangnignigbe Group's story

The Wangnignigbe Group is made up of nine people. Their group representative (the woman with her hand raised in the photo) is named Isabelle. The members of this group all reside in the same district. In order to increase their working capital, the group is requesting their second loan from Alidé. 40-year-old Isabelle is married to a man named Lazard and is a mother to four children. Among these children, some of them are receiving an education. All of the children are living under their parents' care. Isabelle stopped attending school at a primary level. Along with her husband, Isabelle takes care of all the household charges. For around ten years, Isabelle has sold fabrics and dry goods out of her own home. Isabelle works as a seamstress as a secondary activity. This activity generates revenue for her, which allows her to contribute to her family's cost of living. Isabelle buys her supplies from a market in Benin. This second loan will certainly allow Isabelle and her group to take their businesses to the next level and grow both their customer bases and their revenues.

In this group: Anne Marie, Elodie, Rachelle, Colette, Flora Gbelidji, Virginie Angel Cossiali, Isabelle, Augustine, Reine
