Mahuklo 1 Group's story

Mahuklo 1 is a group composed of 3 members who are friends and live in the same district of Benin. The group's representative, Eugénie (whose hand is raised in the picture) is 42 years old. She is married to Claude and the couple have 5 dependent children who all go to school. Eugénie lives together with her husband and children and the couple both take care of the various household responsibilities and expenses.

Eugénie did not go to school. To be able to meet her various responsibilities, she has been a street vendor of fabrics and, as a sideline business, second hand clothing, for 3 years. She gets her supplies in a town in Benin.

In the pursuit of customer satisfaction and with a view to expanding her business, Eugénie is requesting a 3rd loan from ALIDé, together with the other members of Mahuklo 1. This loan will enable them to better respond to customer demand and to earn more profits. The previous loans have been correctly repaid.

In this group: Eugénie , Hemma, Dorisse
