Mahuzonsou 1 Group's story

The group "MAHUZONSOU 1" is composed of three persons who are friends living in the same district. The group's representative, Philomène (with her hand raised in the photo), is 50 years old. She did not attend school. She is married to a man named Albert. The couple have one child. Philomène lives with her child and husband, and they jointly ensure that the family expenses are covered. To do so, Philomène has been selling drinking glasses and kitchen utensils door to door for ten years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers and to increase her sales and her income, Philomène is requesting, along with the other members of the group "MAHUZONSOU 1", a fourth loan from ALIDé. The previous loans were indeed paid back.

In this group: Philomène , Suzane, Chèrifath
