Mawuwetin Group's story

The MAWUWETIN group is composed of three people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the group’s first time seeking financial assistance from ALIDé to bolster their activities. The representative of the group is Nouratou, seen with her hand raised in the photo. Nouratou is 33 years old. She never attended school. She is married to a customs officer named Soulemane, and they have two dependent children who both go to school. Nouratou lives with her husband and children, and the couple provide together for the family’s needs. In order to help with the various household expenses, Nouratou started selling plastic ware in a market of Benin five years ago. She also sells onions as a secondary activity. She buys her stock in Togo. Eager to meet her customers’ needs and to increase her sales and revenue, Nouratou is seeking a first loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the MAWUWETIN group.

In this group: Nouratou, Rose Baï, Koubouratou
