Mahougnon 2 Group's story

MAHOUGNON 2 is a group which consists of three members who live in the same area. The facilitator of the group, Elise (raising her hand in the photo) is 48 years old and married to a man named Daniel. The couple has three children who all attend school. Elise lives with her husband and children. The couple takes care of the various household expenses together. Elise has never attended school. In order to cover her various expenses, she has been selling food products from home for about fifteen years. Additionally, she also sells fried yams and bean fritters from home. She stocks up in various regions in Benin. In order to strengthen her business and to increase her turnover, she is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the MAHOUGNON 2 group. The two previous loans granted to Elise have been duly repaid.
