Alohagbe Group's story

The ALOHAGBE group consists of three members who all live in the same area. The representative of the group, named Mireille-Senami, is the one with the hand raised in the photo. Mireille-Senami was born in 1978 in a city of Benin. She is married to a plumber named Patrick. The couple have three children, all in school and under their care. Mireille-Senami dropped out of secondary school. To provide for her needs and those of her family, Mireille-Senami has been in business for five years selling canned goods, soap, and phone cards. Mireille-Senami stocks up at one of the markets in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction and to increase her revenues and her income, Mireille-Senami is asking for, with the other members of the ALOHAGBE group, a first loan.

In this group: Mireille Sènami, Louise, Françoise
