A loan of $500 helped a member to buy charcoal and seasonal fruit.


Mawugnon Group's story

Mawugnon is a group of 3 people who live in the same district of Benin. The group's representative, Christine (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 39 years old and married to Victorin. The couple have 4 dependent children, all of whom attend school. Christine and her husband live together with their children and both take care of the children's various expenses. Christine did not go to school. She has been selling charcoal and seasonal fruit (as a sideline business) in her region for almost a decade. Christine is passionate about her business which allows her to meet her needs and those of her children. Christine gets her supplies in a region of Benin. In order to be able to satisfy her customers, Christine is requesting a 3rd loan, along with the other members of the Mawugnon group. This loan will enable them to better respond to their customer demand and to earn more profit. The previous loans have been correctly repaid.

In this group: Christine , Angèle, Emilienne
