Midonougbo 1 Group's story

MIDONOUGBO 1 is a group of 25 persons whose members reside in the same district and belong to the same community. The group's representative, Philomène (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 28 years old and married to a man named Armel. The couple have two children, both in school and in their care. Philomène and her husband live together with their children and jointly ensure that the different household expenses are covered.

Philomène did not attend school. For about three years, she has been selling yams and fruit at a market in Benin. She operates this business with passion, and this enables her to help meet family needs. She gets her supplies from a region in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers, Philomène is requesting, along with the other members of the group MIDONOUGBO 1, an initial loan that will be used to respond better to the demands of their customers and to make more profit.

In this group: Philomène, Pepin Isabelle Adjoua, Simone, Houegnon Philomène, Pauline, Léa, Thècle, Egbéa Honorine, Dohoué Delphine, Josiale, Emilienne, Julienne, Djamilia, Florence, Gisèle, Léontine, Assoclé, T. Céline, Sourou, Agnès, Véronique, Juliette, Céline, Honorine, Finagnon Valerie
