Mahouvivi 3 Group's story

"MAHOUVIVI 3" is a group of three persons whose members live in the same house. The group's representative, Séraphine (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 27 years old and married to a mechanic by the name of Jonas. They have three children, all in school and in their care.

Séraphine did not attend school. She lives together with her children and husband and jointly ensures that the different household expenses are covered. For five years, Séraphine has been selling bread and beans by going door to door. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin.

This is the fourth time that Séraphine and the other members of the group MAHOUVIVI 3 have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolstering their working capital and their work and responding better to the requirements of their customers. The loans received previously have indeed been repaid.

In this group: Séraphine, Chantal, Atèssi
