Mahugnon Group's story

Mahugnon is a group of 3 people whose members lives in the same region of Benin. The group's representative, Affiavi Célestine (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 39 years old and married to a secretary called Star. Affiavi Célestine is the mother of 4 children, all of whom attend school and are dependent on the couple. Affiavi Célestine lives together with her husband and their children and the couple take care of the various expenses.

Affiavi Célestine did not go to school. She has been selling beauty products in her shop for around 8 years. She has this business so that she can meet the household needs. Affiavi Célestine gets her supplies in Togo and at a market in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, Affiavi Célestine is requesting a second loan, together with the other members of the Mahugnon group. This loan will be used to better respond to the demands of their clientèle, and to earn more profits. The previous loan was properly repaid.

In this group: Affiavi Célestine, Houévo Rosine, Dariètché Sophie
