Mahuklo 2 Group's story

Mahuklo 2 is a group of 3 people, whose members all lives in the same area of Benin. The group's representative, Madeleine (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 52 years old and married to a builder called Fulbert. Madeleine is the mother of 6 children, some of whom attend school and two of whom are still dependent on the couple. Madeleine lives together with her children and her husband. The couple both take care of the various expenses.

Madeleine did not go to school. She has been selling corn and firewood from her home for nearly 20 years. Madeleine does this so that she is able to meet the household needs. She gets her supplies in her area and in a town in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, Madeleine is requesting a first loan, together with the other members of Mahuklo 2. This loan will be used by them to better respond to the demands of their clientèle, and to earn more profits.

In this group: Madeleine , Rose Thérèse Sinnoudé, Antoinette
