Mizionmahu Group's story

MIZIONMAHU is a group of three people who all live in the same neighbourhood and are friends. The group representative, Agossi Damienne Adodo (who is raising her hand in the picture), is 36 and married to a man named Jacques. The couple has three children, some of whom are in school, one of whom is under their care. Agossi Damienne Adodo and her husband live together with their child and both work together to take care of the family. Agossi Damienne Adodo only went to school for a little while. For nearly ten years now, she has sold various articles and firewood from her home. She is passionate about her work, as it allows her to provide for her own needs and for those of her child. She buys her items from a market in Bénin. In order to provide better customer satisfaction, she and her fellow Mizionmahu group members are requesting a loan. This loan will allow them to better respond to their customers' demand and to increase their profits.

In this group: Agossi Damienne Adodo, Epiphanie, Damienne Zinhoué
