Famille Florentin Group's story

Florentin has his business from selling cosmetic products to selling sweets, which he has found to be more profitable. This business was started through his own initiative, after a difficult situation in his previous occupation.

Florentin's family lives off the income from his business. With this loan, he plans to stock up on merchandise in order to continue his business.

Florentin can be found in the above photograph with his wife, who is also a member of the group.
