Mahudjro 1 Group's story

The MAHUDJRO 1 group is composed of three people who live in the same neighborhood. This is their third time seeking financial support from ALIDé to bolster their activities. The representative of the group is Makilawé Rose, seen with her hand raised in the photo.

Makilawé Rose is 35 years old, and she is married to a man named Antoine. She never attended school. The couple have three dependent children, all in school.

To help with the various household responsibilities, Makilawé Rose started selling food from her home ten years ago. This activity allows her to provide for her family. She buys her stock at a market in Benin.

To achieve customer satisfaction, and to increase her sales and revenue, Makilawé Rose is seeking a third loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the MAHUDJRO 1 group.

In this group: Makilawé Rose, Marie Claire, Justine
