Mawugnon Group's story

The MAWUGNON group is composed of three people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the second time that the group is seeking financial assistance from ALIDé, in order to raise the level of their business activity.

Aimée-Sophie, who is raising her hand in the photograph, is the group's representative. Aimée-Sophie is 44 years old and married to a policeman named Dorothé. Aimée-Sophie lives with her husband and her children. The couple has three children, one of whom remains in their care. All of their children are in school. The various household expenses are covered by the couple.

In order to cover these expenses, Aimée-Sophie has been selling bags of charcoal and cereals at a market in Benin and in her neighborhood for about four years now. This business allows her to contribute to the needs of her family without great difficulty. Aimée-Sophie gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Striving to satisfy her customers and increase her turnover and revenues, Aimée-Sophie, along with the other members of the MAWUGNON group, is seking a second loan. The first loan was correctly repaid.
