Minankpon Group's story

The MINANKPON group consists of three people who live in the same neighborhood. It is the third time that this group is requesting financial support from Alidé, in order to increase its level of activity.

The group's representative, Marie-Claire, is the one raising her hand in the photo. She is 32 years old and married to a man named Bahougobi. She never attended school.

Marie-Claire and Bahougobi have two children, both in school and their dependents. Marie-Claire lives with her husband and children. The couple takes care of the various household expenses together.

For the past ten years, and in order to meet the family's various needs, Marie-Claire has been selling phone recharge cards and condiments in her neighborhood. Thanks to this activity, she is able to meet her own needs without much difficulty.

Marie-Claire buys her goods in one of the regions of Benin. In order to meet her customers' needs, and to increase her turnover and income, Marie-Claire is requesting a third loan from Alidé, together with the other members of the MINANKPON group.

This loan will allow them to boost their level of activity and to increase their customer base and income. Previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Marie-Claire, Gisèle, Mélanie
