A loan of $2,175 helped a member to buy bottles for resale.

Mahutondji Group's story

The group MAHUTONDJI consists of three people who live in the same area and who practice similar activities. Their representative is Pascaline, age 40, whose hand is raised in the photo. She is married to a man named Léon, and they have four dependent children who all go to school. To cover her various expenses, Pascaline sells bottles at a market in Benin. She buys her stock in a city of Benin.

To bolster their working capital and activities, and to better meet customer demand, Pascaline and the other members of MAHUTONDJI are seeking a third loan from ALIDé. Both past loans were correctly repaid.
