Mahugnon As Group's story

Mahugnon As is a group composed of twenty people who live in the same neighborhood in Benin. This is the second time that the group has sought a loan through ALIDé, in order to raise the level of their business and better respond to their clients' demand.

The group's representative Annick is the one raising her hand in the photo. Annick was born May 19, 1972 in Benin. She is the mother of two children, both in school and living together with her. She is no longer living with her husband; she alone pays her children's expenses. In order to make a living, Annick prepares food (corn paste accompanied by fried fish) which she sells to her clientele. This business generates income for her, helping her meet her children's needs. Annick has been running this business for fifteen years and gets her supplies in Benin.

This loan will surely allow Annick and her group to improve their businesses and increase their sales and their income.

In this group: Annick, Eugenie, Pauline, Dorcas, Angèle, Juliette, Mahutin, Séraphine, Chimène, Bernadette, Houndjènoukon, Agnès, Anasthasie, Suzanne, Odette, Juliette, Tognonssi, Henriette, Romaine, Justine
