A loan of $500 helped a member to buy sachets and ointments.


Mahoulome Group's story

MAHOULOME is a group made up of four members who live in the same neighborhood in Benin.

The group's representative, Joselyne Mondoukpè, is the one raising her hand in the photo. She is 32 years old, married to a man named Oscor, and the mother of three children, all in school and their dependents. Joselyne Mondoukpè and her husband live together with their children and jointly take care of the various household expenses.

Joselyne Mondoukpè did not attend school. For the past few years, she has been selling sachets and ointments. She works as an itinerant seller, and she is passionate about her work, which allows her to meet her needs as well as those of her children. She buys her supplies from a town located in Benin.

To ensure the satisfaction of her customers, Joselyne Mondoukpè is requesting a third loan, along with the other members of the MAHOULOME group. This loan will be used to better meet their customers' expectations, and to increase their profits.

In this group: Joselyne Mondoukpè, Latifatou, Marceline, Martine
