Kpemahuton Group's story

KPEMAHUTON is a group of ten persons whose members belong to the same group. The group's representative, Mahoutin Célestine (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 60 years old and married to a man named Innocent. Mahoutin Célestine did not attend school. The couple have four children, of whom some are in school. Two of the children remain in their care.

Mahoutin Célestine lives alone with her children. She ensures by herself that the diverse household expenses are covered. To cope with her different expenses, she has been selling beverages and various goods in her district for about twenty years. She gets her supplies from a warehouse in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers, and aiming to expand her business, Mahoutin Célestine is requesting a fourth loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the group KPEMAHUTON. This loan will be used to respond further to the demands of their customers and to make more profit. The previous loans have indeed been paid back.

In this group: Mahoutin Célestine, Adjouavi Charlotte, Fatima Adoukè, Anicette, Sabine, Pulchérie, Edwige, Adrienne, Epiphanie, Tolome Agathe
