Effort De Catier Morin Group's story

Benito is the coordinator of the Effort de Catier Morin group. He is married, and he has two children. He lives in the Northern region of Haiti, where electricity is scarce and drinking water is very limited.

Benito will buy different products to increase his stock. Before he began trading he attended school. He plans to buy various products including shoes and cosmetics. Other members of the Effort de Catier Morin group need a loan to trade products such as cosmetics, soft drinks, etc.

He says his biggest challenge is to become a great trader in the Northern region. His main goal is to build up a good trade business and make it easier to start a large company, with the help of Esperanza Int.
