Avenir De Bras De Lance Group's story

Antoine is the coordinator of "Avenir de bras de lance" Group. He lives in the department of Nord, where power supply is rare and access to water is very limited. He is single and the father of two children. Antoine has run his business for the past three years. He would like to use his loan to buy bullocks. He hopes that the loan will enable him to expand his business. The other members of the group need their share of the loan for their businesses. They sell coal, hardware and various other articles. Antoine says that his biggest challenge is the lack of customers.
