Mahougnon Evivi Group's story

Mahougnon Evivi is a group of three people who live in the same district. The representative of the group, whose name is Constantine, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. Constantine is 35 years old and married to a man named Ferdinand. She and her husband cover the various family expenses between them. In order to do this, Constantine has been selling second-hand clothing for the past six years. She gets her supplies in a market in Benin. With a view to boosting her business and satisfying customer demand, Constantine has got together with the other members of the Mahougnon Evivi group to request a fifth loan from Alidé. The previous loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Constantine, Hélène, Adjilossoudé
