Mahougnon Group's story

Mahougnon is a group of three people who live in the same district. The representative of the group, whose name is Fabienne Espérencia, is the one with her hand raised in the photo. She is 40 years old and married to a retailer named Jérôme. The couple has five children, all at school and in their care. Fabienne Espérencia and her husband cover the various family expenses between them. In order to do this, Fabienne Espérencia has been selling spare parts in a market in Benin for the 18 years. She gets her supplies in Nigeria. With a view to boosting her business and satisfying customer demand more easily, Fabienne Espérencia has got together with the other members of the Mahougnon group to request a second loan from Alidé. The previous loan was repaid in full.

In this group: Fabienne Espérencia, Emilienne, Adèle
