Bernadette's Group's story

The Mahudjro group is composed of three persons who live in the same neighborhood. It is the second time that this group is seeking financial support from ALIDé in order to increase the level of their activity. The representative of the group, named Bernadette, is the one with the hand raised on the photo.

Bernadette is 41 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to Bernard. They have two children who are their dependents and all are in school. Bernadette lives together with her husband and children. The couple provides together for all the family’s expenses. To contribute to the various expenses of the family, Bernadette has been selling canned goods, corn and flour made from precooked yam pieces, for six years in a market in Benin. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin.

In the pursuit of her customers’ satisfaction and to increase her turnover and her income, Bernadette is requesting, together with the other members of the Mahudjro group, a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was fully repaid.

In this group: Bernadette , Assiba Justine Nathalie, Ahossi
