Mahukpego 7 Group's story

The MAHUKPEGO 7 group is made up of three persons, who all live in the same area and trust one another. This is the second time that this group is requesting ALIDé's financial support to raise their activity level. The group's representative, called Gbèhodé, is the woman raising her hand on the picture.
Gbèhodé was born in Benin in 1958, and is married to a farmer named Pascal. The couple has five dependent children, four of which are their own. None of the children go to school, but they live with their parents. Gbèhodé supports her husband by providing for the household's expenses with him, thanks to the revenues from her business. Gbèhodé never went to school. For about forty years, Gbèhodé has been selling the palm oil she produces, which makes it possible for her to provide for her and her children's expenses. As a secondary activity, Gbèhodé sells beverages. She gets her supplies from Benin.
Looking for customer satisfaction and to increase her revenues, Gbèhodé is requesting a loan, together with her group's other members.

In this group: Gbèhodé , Solange, S. Olivia
