Regard De Jesus 1,2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Macius is the coordinator of his group Regard de Jesus. He is a widow and he has 2 children. Macius lives in the northern region of Haiti where electricity is rare and water is very scarce. Macius has managed his business for the last 12 years. Macius would like to use this loan to invest in the grocery store where he sells a variety of items. Macius hopes that this loan will help him to obtain a larger business. Other members of his group need a loan for businesses such as charcoal, diverse items and cosmetics. Macius says that his main challenges are the lack of purchases and too many people asking him for credit. He says that his main goal is to have more money to obtain a large business with the help of God.
