Mahuclo Group's story

MAHUCLO is a group which consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood and belong to the same Church. The group's representative (raising her hand in the photo) is named Clémence Sourou. In order to increase its working capital, this group is requesting a tenth loan from ALIDé.

Clémence Sourou is 37 years old and married to a man named Michel. The couple has five children, all in school and all their dependents. Clémence Sourou never attended school. She lives with her husband and children and takes care of the various household expenses with her husband. To meet her needs and those of her family, she has been selling some paste and cake, and additionally kitchen utensils, for the past fifteen years. Clémence Sourou buys her supplies at a market in Benin and works as an itinerant seller.

This tenth loan will allow the members of this group to increase their level of activity, customer base, and income. Their nine previous loans have been well repaid.
