Mahussi Group's story

MAHUSSI is a group of three persons whose members reside in the same district. The group's representative, Antoinette (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 41 years old and a widow. She is the mother of three children, all in school and in her care. Antoinette lives alone with her children and ensures by herself that the diverse needs of the children are met. To achieve this, she has been selling fruit (bananas) and chickens door to door and from her home. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

This is the first time that Antoinette and the other members of the group MAHUSSI have requested financial support from ALIDé with the aim of bolstering their working capital and their business and responding better to the requirements of their customers.

In this group: Antoinette , Marguerite, Justine
