Mahugnon 4 Group's story

The group MAHUGNON 4 consists of three friends who practice the same activity. The group’s president is Françoise, seen with her hand raised in the photo. She is 28 years old and married to a mason named Toussaint. They have one child. Françoise lives with her husband and their child.

About two years ago, Françoise started selling a soap called KOGUI (made with red oil and caustic soda) through the distribution system. She buys her supplies at a market in Benin. This is her first loan cycle withe ALIDé.

With the steady increase of customer demand, Françoise wishes to bolster her working capital and strengthen her activity to better meet the needs of her clientele.

To that end, Françoise is seeking a loan from ALIDé together with the other members of the group MAHUGNON 4.
