Mahulolo Aa1 Group's story

Mahulolo Aa1 is a group of two people, whose members are friends. The representative of the group is named Antoinette (shown in the photo with her hand raised). Antoinette is 51 years old and married to a mechanic named Séverin. The couple has five children, some of whom are enrolled in school, and three of whom are their dependents. Antoinette and her husband live together with their children and the two pay for all of the household's expenses. Antoinette has never had the opportunity to attend school.

For nearly fifteen years Antoinette has been running her business selling motor oil and various sundries from her home. Antoinette runs her business with passion, as it allows her to satisfy her needs as well as the needs of her children. She purchases her supplies from a market in Benin. Antoinette, along with the other member of Mahulolo Aa1, is seeking her first loan from Alidé. Her goal is to increase the satisfaction of her customers. This loan will allow her to better meet the demands of her clientele and thus earn more income.
