Mivo Group's story

MIVO is a group made up of three people who all belong to the same "tontine" group. The group's representative, Falilatou (who is raising her hand in the photo), is 51 years old. Falilatou is married to a man named Tamaman. Falilatou did not go to school. Falilatou and Tamaman have two children, all of whom have received schooling. One of their children remains in their care. Falilatou lives with her husband and children. Both she and her husband cover the various household expenses.

In order to keep up with the various expenses, Falilatou sells fabric through the distribution system. She stocks up in a town in Benin.

Striving to better respond to the demands of her ever growing customer base and earn greater profits, Falilatou, along with the other members of the MIVO group, is seeking a loan from ALIDé for the first time.

In this group: Falilatou, Félicité, Jeanne Ekoundayo
