Mawugnon 2 Group's story

The MAWUGNON 2 group is made up of three people who all live in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, whose name is Lucie, is the woman raising her hand in the photo. Lucie is 43 years old and did not go to school. She is married to a driver named Hyacinth. Lucie and Hyacinth have four children, all of whom live in their care and all of whom have received schooling.

In order to cover the various household expenses, Lucie has been selling food (rice with sauce) for nearly twenty years now. She stocks up at a market in Benin.

Striving to satisfy her customers and increase both her sales and revenue, Lucie, along with the other members of the MAWUGNON 2 group, is seeking a second loan through ALIDé. The first loan was correctly repaid.

In this group: Lucie , Bernadette, Martine Médéssè
