Mahugnon As Group's story

The "Mahugnon As" group is made up of 15 people who live in the same area. This is the 4th time that the group is requesting financial help from ALIDé, in order to raise their level of business activity. The group's representative, Annick, is the woman with her hand raised in the picture. Annick did not go to school. She is 40 years old and married to a cook called François. Annick is the mother of 2 children, one of whom goes to school and both of whom are dependent on the couple. Annick lives together with her husband and children. The couple both take care of the various household responsibilities. In order to be able to meet her responsibilities, Annick has been selling food and sauces made from condiments in a district of Benin for 15 years. She gets her supplies at a market in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, increased sales numbers and revenues, Annick is requesting, together with the other members of "Mahugnon As", a 4th loan from ALIDé. The first 3 loans have been properly repaid.

In this group: Annick, Eugenie, Pauline, Ornella Dorcas, Marthe Juliette, Séraphine, Bernadette, Houndjènoukon, Yenoussi Anasthasie, Ahidessi Suzanne, Odette, Juliette, Zognonsi, Justine, Bidjoke Angèle
