Mahugnon 22 Group's story

MAHUGNON 22 is a group made up of three people who live in the same neighborhood. Madeleine, the group's representative, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. In order to increase its working capital, the group is requesting its third loan from ALIDé.

Madeleine is 39 years old and a widow. She has nine children in her care, three of whom are her own children. All the children attend school. Madeleine lives alone with her children and takes care of the household expenses alone. She has never attended school.

In order to provide for herself and her children, Madeleine sells fried yams and fritters from home. Additionally, she has also been selling baby diapers for almost twenty years. Madeleine stocks up in a town in Benin.

This loan will certainly help Madeleine and her group, MAHUGNON 22, to boost their activity level, increase their customer base and their income. Previous loans have been well repaid.

In this group: Madeleine, Pierrette, Tété Lucie
