Mahugnon 1 Group's story

The Mahugnon 1 group consists of three persons from the same neighborhood. The representative for the group, Affiavi Célestine, is the one raising her hand in the picture. This is the fourth time that this group has sought financial support from ALIDé, seeking to raise the level of their business activities. Affiavi Célestine is 41 years old and is married to Agbahougba. The couple has four children, all attending school and who are their dependents. Affiavi Célestine lives together with her children and her husband, with whom she handles the various family expenses. To contribute towards the various household needs, Affiavi Célestine has been selling various products (fabrics, handbags, plastic bags, etc.). She has been performing this activity over the past thirteen years, which has enabled her to meet her personal needs. Wanting to reinforce her business and better respond to customers' demands, Affiavi Célestine is requesting a fourth loan, along with the other members of the Mahugnon 1 group. All previous loans have been reimbursed in full.

In this group: Affiavi Célestine, Dariètchè Sophie, Houévo Rosine
