Mahoumegnidaho Group's story

The MAHOUMEGNIDAHO group consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood in Benin. The representative of the group, Ahoefa Marie, is raising her hand in the photo. She is 54 years old and married to a man named Toubias. The couple has three children who all attend school. Two of the children are their dependents. Ahoefa Marie lives with her husband and children and takes care of the various family expenses with her husband.

Ahoefa Marie left school at the elementary level. For the past five years, she has been selling maize and kitchen utensils through the distribution system, in order to cover the diverse household expenses. She stocks up at a market in Benin.

In order to meet her customers' needs and to increase her turnover, she and the other members of the MAHOUMEGNIDAHO group are requesting a second loan from ALIDé. The previous loan was well repaid.

In this group: Ahoefa Marie, Célestine, Chantale
