Mahuclo 1 Group's story

The Mahuclo 1 group is made up of three people who all live in the same area.

Colette, the representative of this group, has her hand raised in the photo. She is 49 years old and is married to a mechanic named Jean. The couple has two children, who go to school. Colette lives together with her husband and children.

Together, the couple takes care of the various household expenses. For this reason, Colette travels around and sells used clothing. In addition to this business, Colette also sells grilled groundnuts, which allow her to better take care of her family. Colette procures her goods in a market in Benin.

In order to increase her business and better meet customer demand, Colette is seeking a seventh loan with Alidé, together with the other members of the Mahuclo 1 group.

In this group: Colette, Pierrette, Anne
