Main Dans La Main Group's story

MAIN DANS LA MAIN is a group composed of four women who live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, named Chantal, is raising her hand in the photo. She is 39 years old and married to a man called Seyni. Chantal and Seyni have two children, both in school and their dependents. Chantal lives with her husband and children. The couple jointly takes care of the household's expenses.

Chantal left school at the primary level. In order to cover her various expenses, as well as those of her family, she has been selling fabrics and shoes for about fifteen years, through the distribution system. She stocks up at a market located in Benin.

In order to better meet the expectations of an increasing number of customers, and also to make more profits, Chantal is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the MAIN DANS LA MAIN group. Previous loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Chantal, A. Alexandrine, Agathe, Julienne
