Midonougbo Group's story

MIDONOUGBO is a group of eleven persons whose members reside in the same district and belong to the same community. The group's representative, Victoire, whose hand is raised in the photo, is 50 years old and married to a man named Albert. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. The couple live together with the children and jointly ensure that the different household expenses are covered.

Victoire left school at the elementary level. For eight years, she has had a business selling soaps and a variety of goods out of her home. Parallel to this business, she sells rice at a market in Benin. She operates her business with passion, and this enables her to support herself. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers, Victoire is requesting, along with the other members of the group MIDONOUGBO, a second loan that will be used to respond better to the demands of their customers and to make more profit. The previous loan was indeed paid back.

In this group: Victoire, Françine Laure, Amavi Akpénè, Victoire, Rosaline, Afi, Carole, Sika Delphine, Lariatou, Virginie, Elisabeth
