Delegate Bachuo'ntai section: Mr Tabi Mbi Benson and his wife
The President of Bachuo'ntai section, Agbor Edward Enon, giving an introductory speech
|I am 36 years old and a single mother with 6 children. I stopped my studies at secondary school when I became pregnant with my first child. But now I am a primary school teacher and shareholder of MACEFCOOP. I am one of the two women of the Executive Committee of my section and I have just been elected Vice President of MACEFCOOP during the AGM in January 2005.|
I joined MACEFCOOP thanks to my son. My late senior brother was Vice President of this section. He used to take my son to the section meetings, who then became interested in MACEFCOOP. My brother bought the shares for him and he became shareholder when he was 19 years old. In 2002, my son left for University to study Economics and he asked me to attend section meetings on his behalf. I became interested in the cooperative services because of the provision of chemicals at discounted prices, purchase of produce at good prices and the use of good scales. I then registered and became a shareholder of Bachuo section soon after.
