Missimahu 2 Group's story

MISSIMAHU 2 is a group composed of three persons who belong to the same artisans association. The group's representative, Jérémie (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 37 years old and married to a merchant named Nathalie. The couple have four children, some in school but all in their care. Among the children, three are their own. Jérémie lives together with his wife and children. Along with her, he ensures that the household expenses are covered.

Jérémie did not attend school, but he learned how to weld. It is work that he has been doing for about ten years in a city in Benin. This business enables him to cope with his various needs and to feed his family. He gets his supplies from a city in Benin.

With the goal of responding better to the requirements of his burgeoning customer base and making more profit, Jérémie is requesting, along with the other members of the group MISSIMAHU 2, an initial loan from ALIDé.

In this group: Jérémie, Brice Yémalin, Raymond
