St. Suzanne Jesus Devant Group's story

The “Jesus Devant” Group, which translates from Haitian Creole to “Jesus in Front”, consists of ten female entrepreneurs. After successfully repaying their first and second loans, they are looking forward to continued success and growth in their businesses with their third loan.

Alteon P. is one of two representatives of the group. He is a husband and father to seven children ranging in ages from 13 to 3 years old.

This hardworking dad focuses his business efforts on charcoal sales. He will sometimes buy the charcoal already made but when possible he simply buys the wood and makes the charcoal himself, thus increasing his profit margin. He also dabbles in the sale of syrup which he buys when he buys freshly cut wood.

Alteon is thankful for the past loans because he was able to send his children to school, feed his family better, and create savings with the increased profits. He prays that he will be able to grow his business and that “Esperanza may continue to grow and be a blessing to the community.”

On behalf of Alteon, Jesus Devant, and Esperanza we thank you for your support.
