Mahoudjro 1 Group's story

The group MAHOUDJRO 1 consists of three members who are friends and live in the same neighborhood. The group’s representative is Djima Marthe, seen with her hand raised in the photo.

Djima Marthe, age 44, is married to a man named Paul, and the couple have five dependent children, some of whom go to school. They support another child in addition to their own children. Djima Marthe and her husband live together with their children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together. To that end, Djima Marthe sells a bean dish from her home. This activity allows her to support herself fairly easily. She buys her supplies at a market in Benin.

To achieve customer satisfaction and to bolster her sales and revenue, Djima Marthe is seeking a third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group MAHOUDJRO 1. This credit will help them to strengthen their activities, expand their customer base and increase their revenue. Both past loans were successfully repaid.

In this group: Djima Marthe, Pascaline, Célestine
