Djromahuton Group's story

DJROMAHUTON is a group of three persons whose members reside in the same district in Benin. The group's representative, Florentine Sèna (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 27 years old and married to a retailer named Simplice. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. She and her husband live together with their children and jointly ensure the different expenses are covered for the children.

Florentine Sèna did not attend school. For nearly eight years, she has been selling cloth, shoes, and sewing supplies in her district. She operates her business with passion, and this enable her to meet her needs and those of her children. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

Seeking to satisfy her customers, Florentine Sèna is requesting, along with the other members of the group DJROMAHUTON, an initial loan. This loan will be used to respond better to the demands of their customers and to make more profit.
