Djromahuton 14 Group's story

The Djromahuton 14 group comprises three people who are friends and belong to the same craftsman association in Benin. The group representative, Yves Magloire (with the raised hand in the photo), is 40 years old and married to a seamstress named Bernadette. The couple have three children, all of whom are in school, and an additional child in their care. Yves Magloire and his wife live together with their children and provide for the family together. Yves Magloire ended his studies at the secondary level. He is an embroiderer and has established his own workshop in a city in Benin. For close to 13 years, he has run this business, which provides him with an income to help meet his needs and those of his family. His clientele is steadily increasing, and Yves Magloire needs another machine that will allow him to better respond to their demands quickly. To do this, he is seeking a first loan along with the other members of his Djromahuton 14 group. This loan will allow them to better respond to the demands of their customers and generate higher profits.

In this group: Yves Magloire, Abraham, Inoussa
