She is married to Edgar and is the mother of 3 children, some of whom attend school. Madeleine lives together with her children and husband, and she and her spouse share the various family expenses. In order to be able to to care of her needs and cover the household expenses, she has been selling corn and vegetables from her home for around a decade. She gets her products in a Benin market.
