Homegningnon Mahuton Group's story

The HOMEGNINGNON MAHUTON group is comprised of three people who live in the same neighborhood. This is the second time that the group has asked for financial support from ALIDé to help them grow their business. The group representative, Akuele Odile, is the one with her hand raised in the photo.

Akuele Odile is 39 and lives in Benin. Akuele Odile is married to Hervé. The couple has three dependent children who go to school. Akuele Odile lives with her husband and children. In order to take care of the family expenses, Akuele Odile has been selling food (starch paste, cassava flour paste, and fried fish) out of her home for 20 years. Akuele Odile buys her supplies in a market in Benin.

With the goal of satisfying her clients and in order to grow her sales and revenues, Akuele Odile, along with the other members of the HOMEGNINGNON MAHUTON group, is asking for a second loan with ALIDé. This loan will allow then to grow their business and increase their profits. Their previous loan was repaid.

In this group: Akuele Odile, Dédé Delphine, Amèyo Sophie
