Mahudjro 24 Group's story

The Mahudjro 24 group is made up of three people who belong to the same tontine group. The leader of the group who is called Patinvo Bertin (the one with his hand raised in the photo) is 57 years old. Patinvo Bertin went to school up to the end of the primary level. He is married to Josephine. They have five children, some of which attend school and two of which are dependent on them. Patinvo Bertin lives with his wife and his children. He and his wife share the family expenses. In order to have the means to do this Patinvo Bertin runs a business of transformation of palm nuts into vegetable oil and he also sells palm kernels. He has been running his business for about thirty years. Patinvo Bertin buys his stock at a market in Benin. In order to satisfy his clientele and to increase his turnover and his income, Patinvo Bertin and the other members of the Mahudjro 24 group, request a first loan from Alidé.
