A loan of $850 helped a member to purchase additional motor oil.

Mahutin (Avotrou) Group's story

The Mahuting Avotroou group is comprised of three entrepreneurs, who are all in the same family. This would be their third loan from ALIDE now that they have successfully repaid their prior loans.

Isabelle (pictured with her hand raised) was born in 1969, and she now lives in Cotonou, Benin's largest city. She moved to her current home three months ago, and she now lives with her husband, Benjamin. She and Benjamin have four children, all of whom are in school.

For the past 25 years, Isabelle has run a stall where she sells motor oil to customers in her local neighborhood. This loan would enable her to purchase oil from a wholesale boutique in Cotonou. Her long-term goal is to strengthen her business by importing oil. She explains that she has good management skills and is prudent in her approach to business.

In this group: Isabelle, Mobolassi, Fidèle
