Djison Couture Group's story

They are five women who meet every day and adopted the name "Book Yeugue" for their group. They live in the same neighborhood and all have businesses. Mrs. Farma is the president of the group. She is 51-years old and she sells various products. She has over five years of experience. She is married and mother of seven children. This is her first loan request; it will enable her to strengthen her business selling dyed "Thioub" fabric and improve the dietary condition of her family. With this loan, she plans to strengthen and diversify her products. Farma starts her day at 8 am and ends at 6 pm. She wishes to grow her business to the point where she no longer needs loans.
