Famille Bengana Group's story

It has been since 2008 that Mr. Jean Claude has been educating his children. After finding that the charges have become enormous, he made the decision to affiliate himself with [the micro-finance institution], PAIDEK for the financing of the schooling of his children, which he will reimburse gradually from his monthly salary. He is in the photo with his wife and his educated children.
