Mihin Ayi Group's story

The group MIHIN AYI is comprised of three persons who operate their businesses in the same market. The group's representative, Chéri, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 33 years old and lives in Benin. She did not attend school. Chéri is married to a furniture maker by the name of Jean. They have five children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children. The couple jointly ensure that the diverse family expenses are covered.

To ensure the diverse family expenses are covered, Chéri sells fish and palm oil, which she produces in a region in Benin. She gets her supplies in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and increase her sales and her revenues, Chéri along with the other members of the group MIHIN AYI are requesting a third loan from ALIDé. The first two loans were indeed repaid.

In this group: Chéri , Antoinette, Philomène
