Kpehouton Group's story

The group named Kpehouton is made up of three people who live in the same neighbourhood. The leader of the group who is called Ablawa Pauline (the one with her hand raised in the photo) is 44 years old. Ablawa Pauline stopped attending school at the secondary level. Ablawa Pauline is married to a shopkeeper named Jules. The couple has two children, both attend school at their expense. Ablawa Pauline lives with her husband and their children. The household expenses are shared between Ablawa Pauline and her husband. In order to do this Ablawa Pauline buys jewellery, which she has been selling by distribution for three years. She buys her stock at a market in Benin. Hoping to consolidate her business, Ablawa Pauline has joined the other members of the Kpehouton group to request a first loan from Alidé.

In this group: Ablawa Pauline, Hyacintha E. Bienvenue, Fortunée
