Jesuwehuhlontche Group's story

JESUWEHUHLONTCHE is a group of three people who are all friends. The representative of the group is called Florentine Mahoutin (pictured with her hand raised in the photo), and she is 42 years of age and married to Cosme. The couple has two children, both at school and under their care. Florentine Mahoutin stopped going to school at elementary level.

Florentine Mahoutin lives with her children and husband and, together with him, ensures that the various household expenses are met. For almost three years she has sold hardware products from her home. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

This is the third time that Florentine Mahoutin and the other members of the JESUWEHUHLONTCHE group have requested the financial support of ALIDé. They have done so to increase their working capital and strengthen their business, as well as to better meet the needs of their customers. The first two loans they were given have been successfully repaid.

In this group: Florentine Mahoutin, Honorine, Ménouhoué Cécile
