Mahulome Ekpe Group's story

MAHULOME EKPE is a group composed of 4 people who all live in the same neighborhood in Benin. The group representative, Brigitte, is the one raising her hand on the picture. This is the first time that this group requests a loan from ALIDé, in order to increase their business. Brigitte is married to a mechanic named Saturnin. The couple takes care of their 3 children, some of whom go to school. Brigitte and her husband have been living in their neighborhood with their children for just 2 years. They both provide for their family. Brigitte has been selling ready-to-wear clothes and shoes, door to door, for about 5 years. Brigitte buys those items in Dantokpa, an international market in Bénin. In order to strenghten her business and better meet the needs of her customers, Brigitte, along with the other members of the group, is seeking funding.

In this group: Brigitte, Anne Marie , F. Edith, Colette
