Mahu Wegni Daho Group's story

The MAHU WEGNI DAHO group consists of four persons who reside in the same neighborhood. This is the second time that the group has sought financial assistance from ALIDé to raise the level of its activity.

The representative of the group, named Pulchérie, is the one raising her hand in the picture. She is 39 years old and lives in Benin. Pulchérie has not attended school. She is married to a tailor named Jacques. The couple has two children attending school and who are under their care. Pulchérie lives with her ​​husband and children. The couple shares responsibility for all the various needs of the family.

To support herself and contribute towards household expenses, Pulchérie has been selling clothing fabrics and cooking utensils through the distribution system for the past ten years. She resupplies at one of the markets in Benin.

In her quest for customer satisfaction and to increase her turnover and income, Pulchérie, along with other MAHU WEGNI DAHO group members, is requesting a second loan from ALIDé. The first loan was fully repaid.

In this group: Pulcherie , Zinsou Baï Léonie, Raïmatou Isbath, Marthe Ablanvi
