La Reconnaissance Group's story

Zephyrin, age 50, is married with 2 children, who are 14 and 17 years old and currently attend school. He is representing the La Reconnaissance group. Zephyrin has a stand in the market where he sells food. He has been selling in the market for over 10 years and has acquired a good reputation and loyal customers. Zephyrin will use the loan to buy seasonal fruit, palm oil, and beef. His business strategy is to sell his 2-3 day old meat to one of his group members who has a restaurant. He sells it at a cheaper price, but still makes a small profit. He would normally make a loss on this meat and have to throw it away.
