Group Abizerana's story
Emile is 43 years old and married with four children between 2 and 8 years old. Emile is the president of a group loan called "Abizerana." The group is composed of two gentlemen and four ladies. In the photo, he is the third from the left (in the brown overall outfit). Emile owns a boutique and sells sugar, rice, bread, cooking oil, etc. He has been in this business for about two years and his boutique is open from 5 AM until 9 PM every day. He will use his portion of the loan to purchase more goods like maize flour and drinks on top of what he is selling now. Emile and his group plan to use the profits from their loans for reinvesting in their businesses.
