Mahugnon 1 Group's story

The Mahugnon 1 group consists of three persons who live in the same neighborhood. This is the sixth time the group is requesting financial support from ALIDé, to raise the level of its activities. The representative for the group, named Médédodé Claire, is the one raising her hand in the picture.

Médédodé Claire is 46 years old and is married to Amidou. She attended school up to secondary level. She is the mother of four children, some of whom are in school, and one is under their care. She lives with her ​​husband and her child, and she manages together with her husband the various household expenditures.

To make ends meet over the past five years, Médédodé Claire has been selling food products and firewood from her home. She resupplies in one of Benin's markets.

In their quest for customer satisfaction and increasing sales and revenue, Médédodé Claire and the other members of the Mahugnon 1 group are requesting a sixth loan from ALIDé. Previous loans have been repaid in full.

In this group: Médédodé Claire, Agohoué Damienne, Hortense Ayabavi
