Djlomahuton Group's story

The group DJLOMAHUTON is composed of eleven persons, who live in the same district. The group’s representative, Florence Sèmako, is the one with a hand raised in the photo. She is 37 years old and married to man named Hypolite. The couple have three children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children.

Florence Sèmako ensures along with her husband that the diverse household expenses are covered. To do so, she has been selling a variety of goods and phone minutes cards out of her home for about ten years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering her business, Florence Sèmako and the other members of the group DJLOMAHUTON are requesting a third loan from ALIDé. The previous loans were indeed paid back.
