Mahudjro 5 Group's story

MAHUDJRO 5 is a group of five people who are all friends and practice the same religion. The group representative, Dohoué Alice (who is raising her hand in the photo), is 50 and a widow. She has four children, some of whom are in school, all of whom are under her care. She never went to school. Dohoué Alice lives alone with her children and takes care of them by herself. In order to do so, she has prepared and sold gruel with pastries at a local intersection for about ten years now. She is passionate about her work, because it allows her to provide for her children's needs and for her own.
Dohoué Alice gets her supplies in a market in Bénin. In order to provide better customer satisfaction, she is requesting her first loan along with her fellow MAHUDRO 5 group members. This loan will allow them to better respond to customer demand and to make more profits.

In this group: Dohoué Alice, Lucienne, Modoukpè, Jeanne
