Mahuena Group's story

The group called Mahuena is made up of three persons who live in the same district. Gaston (the one who has his hand raised in the photo) is the representative of the group.

Gaston is 51. He is married to Séraphine. The couple have four children, all enrolled in school and in their care. Gaston lives with his wife and children. The couple share in covering household expenses. For this reason Gaston has been selling rechargeable phone cards for 10 years out of his home. He buys his stock from a wholesaler in his area. Wishing to expand his activity, Gaston came together with the other members of the Mahuena group to request a fourth loan from ALIDé. The prior loans have been correctly reimbursed.

In this group: Gaston , Séraphine, M. Virginie
