Mahussi Group's story

MAHUSSI is a group of three people, the members of whom belong to the same tontine group. In order to increase the level of their business and to cope with their customers' demands, the group approached Alidé, with an eye to obtaining another loan. The group's representative, Pascaline Céline (whose hand is raised in the photo) is 42 years old. Pascaline Céline doesn't live with her husband anymore and is the mother of two children, one of whom is in school. Pascaline Céline did not attend school. To cope with her various needs, ten years ago Pascaline Céline started selling rice and various items (fabric, etc.). With the goal of increasing the level of her business, while diversifying it, Pascaline Céline is asking together with the other members of the MAHUSSI group for a fourth loan from Alidé. Their three previous loans were repaid in full.

In this group: Pascaline Céline, Oloufèmi Grâce, Pélagie Adichédé
