Nonvignon 8 Group's story

NONVIGNON 8 is a group of seven persons whose members reside in the same district. The group representative, Assiba Solange (with her hand raised in the photo), is 38 years old and married to a driver named Marcelle. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. Assiba Solange lives together with her husband and children. The couple jointly ensure that the diverse household expenses are covered.

To meet the needs of her children, as well as her own needs, Assiba Solange has been selling hair extensions in her region for about seven years. On the side, she sells fabrics. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of expanding her business and being more competitive in the market, Assiba Solange wishes to increase her stock of products. This will enable her to grow her sales and her revenues. To do so, she is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the group NONVIGNON 8.

In this group: Isabelle Ahiba, Sossi Marcelline, Assiba Solange, Viviane, Pélagie, Innocentia Okê, Auréole
