Mahukpego Group's story

The Mahukpego group is made up of 5 people who all live in the same district. The group's representative, Rébeca, has her hand raised in the picture. The is the 5th time that the group is requesting ALIDé's financial help, so that they can raise the level of their business activity. Rébeca is 49 years old. She is married to a fisherman called Pierre and is the mother of 6 children. None of the children attend school. Of the 6 children, Rébeca and her husband are only responsible for two. The couple both contribute to the household's different needs. Rébeca has been selling fish and prawns from her home and on the street for around 20 years, in order to be able to cover her various expenses. She gets her supplies locally. Rébeca would like to increase her inventory, so that she can strengthen her business further and is better able to respond to customer demand. To be able to do that, she is requesting a 5th loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of the Mahukpego group. The 4 previous loans were correctly repaid.

In this group: Rébeca , Doutehoue, Amitin, Martine, Hohouto Françoise
