Jean is a member of the Duterimbere/Mgnz group. He is 54 years old, married and has 8 children aged between 9 and 22 years old, 5 of whom go to school. He also has one other dependent.

Jean had 5 years of primary school education and is a rice farmer. This is his 2nd loan cycle with ACB. He will use his loan to buy chemical fertilizer and to pay the manual labourers.

Jean's strategy for the growth of his business is to request more loans with which to finance his agricultural operation. In the coming years, he would like to be one of the best rice producers in his region. He plans to use his profits to pay for his children's education.
