Mawu Wegni Daho Group's story

The group MAWU WEGNI DAHO comprises five persons who reside in the same district. The group's representative, Elise, is the one in the photo with her hand raised. She is 41 years old and married to a man named Isaac. She is the mother of three children, all in school and in the couple's care. Elise lives together with her husband and children, and along with her husband, she ensures that the diverse household needs are met.

To help with different household needs, Elise has been selling bundles of wood, vegetable oil, and fruit in her district for about thirty years. This business enables her to meet her needs without much problem. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and revenues, Elise, along with the other members of the group MAWU WEGNI DAHO, is requesting a third loan from ALIDé. This loan will enable them to raise their level of business and to grow their customer base and their revenues. The first two loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Elise, Juliette, Kossiba, Régina, Huguette
