Mondoukpe Group's story

MONDOUKPE is a group of four people whose members live in the same neighborhood in Benin. The representative of the group, Simone Celine (whose hand is raised in the photo) is married to a Julien. The couple have four children, some of whom attend school. Simone Celine lives alone. The couple take care of the different household expenses together. Simone Celine stopped attending school at the secondary level. Almost 20 years ago, Simone Celine started a business selling shoes in a market in Benin. Simone Celine is passionate about her business which enables her to meet her needs and those of her children. Simone Celine stocks up at the market in Benin. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, Simone Celine is asking for a second loan with the other members of the Mondoukpe Group. This loan will allow them to better respond to customer demand and to earn more profits. Their prior loan was fully repaid.

In this group: Simone Céline, Bmidélé Cécile, Fifamè Victoire, Founayo Charlotte
