Pasyans's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to allow members to buy personal products to sell retail.

Pasyans's story

Manise is an influential member of an associated entity in Haiti named "Pasyans" whose meaning is "Patience". Her entity is developing small economic activities for some female members this year. They have a group of members who are looking for a loan to buy personal products to retail.

With a loan from Fonkoze, the group would like to start saving early for the next school year. This loan will allow these members to increase their purchasing power and also to be able to pay their children's school tuition this year.
