Kpemahuton 2 Group's story

Kpemahuton 2 is a group of three people, whose members are friends and take part together in tontines (savings groups). The representative for the group is Yénoukoumè (the one raising her hand in the photo), and she is 55 years old.

Yénoukoumè did not attend school. She married a carpenter named Assoclé. The couple has three children, some of whom are in school and all are their dependents. Yénoukoumè lives with her ​​husband and children, and the couple shares household expenditures.

To manage this, Yénoukoumè has been selling lubricants (diesel fuel and motor oil) from her home for the past thirty years. She resupplies in Nigeria.

To strengthen her business and meet customer demand, Yénoukoumè and the other members of the Kpemahuton 2 group are seeking a fourth loan from ALIDé. Previous loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Yénoukoumè , Raliatou, Blandine
