A loan of $500 helped a member to buy hair extensions.


Kpemahuton Group's story

The group KPEMAHUTON consists of three members who all live together. The group is represented by Epiphanie, age 33, who has her hand raised in the photo. Epiphanie never attended school, but she learned hairstyling. She is married to a man named Marius, and the couple have three dependent children who all go to school.

Epiphanie lives with her husband and their children, and the couple handle the various household responsibilities together. To that end, Epiphanie has been selling hair extensions from her salon for the past nine years. She buys her stock at a market in Benin.

To achieve customer satisfaction, and to increase her sales and revenue, Epiphanie is seeking a first loan from ALIDé together with the other members of KPEMAHUTON.

In this group: Epiphanie , Baï Lydia, Josephine
