Wibatin Group's story

WIBATIN is a group of three persons whose members reside in the same district. The group's representative, Mahussi (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 40 years old. She is married to a farmer named Daniel. The couple have four children, all in school and in their care. The couple live together with their children and jointly ensure that the different household needs are met. Mahussi did not attend school. For nearly ten years, she has had a business selling staples (vegetable oil, rice) at a market in Benin. She operates this business with passion, and this enables her to meet her needs. She gets her supplies from a region in Benin. Seeking to satisfy her customers, Mahussi is requesting, along with the other members of the group WIBATIN, a third loan, which they will use to respond better to the demands of their customers and to make more profit. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Mahussi , Elisabeth, Josephine
