Mahudjro 16 Group's story

MAHUDJRO 16 is a group composed of three persons who are friends and who participate in a revolving savings fund together. The representative of the group, Yambodè Désiré (the one with his hand raised in the photo) is 51. Yambodè Désiré only attended school for a bit, but he learned to be a mechanic. He is married to a saleswoman named Rose. The couple have 10 children of whom certain ones have attended school and four are still living under their roof. The couple share in supporting the household. To do this, Yambodè Désiré, alongside his business also sells spare parts and motor oil in order to satisfy the demand of his clientele. He buys his supplies in a market in Benin. Wishing to expand his business and keep his clientele faithful to his business, Yambodè Désiré came together with the other members of the group called MAHUDJRO 16 in order to ask for a second loan from ALIDé. Their prior loan was correctly reimbursed.

In this group: Yambodè Désiré, S. Justine, Logbo Marcel
