Mahudjro12 Group's story

The "Mahudjro 12" group comprises three people who are friends and live in the same area. The group leader, named Gbessouvègni Brigitte, is 33 years old and has her hand raised in the photo. Gbessouvègni Brigitte is married to Fiacre, a mechanic. The couple have two children, one of whom is in school. Gbessouvègni Brigitte and Fiacre live together with their children and provide for the various household expenses together. Gbessouvègni Brigitte did not attend school. For close to six years, she has run a business selling food items (maize, millet) at her home; this allows her to respond to her family's needs without too much difficulty. With the hope of better responding to the needs of her clientele, Gbessouvègni Brigitte wants to expand her business. To do this, she is seeking a fifth loan with ALIDÉ, along with the other members of the Mahudjro 12 group. The previous loans were all repaid properly.

In this group: Gbessouvègni Brigitte, Atannon Mireille, Adjoavi Gilberte
