Mahucolo Group's story

The MAHUCOLO group consists of three members who are sisters-in-law and co-wives. The group's representative, Marie 2, is raising her hand in the photo. She is 33 years old and married to a man named Henri.

Marie 2 has attended school up to the secondary level. She and her husband have four children, some of whom are in school. All four are their dependents. Marie 2 and her husband jointly take care of the household's expenses.

In order to cover her various expenses, Marie 2 sells food products (rice, beans) from home. She stocks up at a market in Benin.

Eager to better meet the expectations of an increasing number of customers, and also to make more profits, Marie 2 is requesting a third loan from ALIDé, along with the other members of the MAHUCOLO group. The previous two loans have been duly repaid.

In this group: Marie 2, Mouiba, Yvette
