Mahukpego 3 Group's story

The Mahukpego group is made up of 3 people who are friends and live in the same neighbourhood. This is the 3rd time that this group is requesting financial help from ALIDé, so that they can raise the level of their business activity. The group's representative, called Yabo, is the woman with her hand raised in the picture. Yabo is 37 years old and lives in Benin. She is married to a driver called Laurent. The couple have 5 children, some of whom are educated, and only one of whom is still dependent on them. Yabo lives alone with her child and she and her husband both take care of her needs and those of their child. In order to be able to provide for herself, Yabo has been selling beauty products (perfumes and powders) in her region for around 20 years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction as well as increased sales and revenue, Yabo is requesting, together with the other members of the Mahukpego group, a 3rd loan from ALIDé. The first 2 loans have been correctly repaid.
