Marie Therese's story
Marie Therese returned to Haiti in 1987 to open a sewing business after several years' absence. She was very passionate and she did exactly what she loved to do. Despite the challenges in this sector, she stayed strong and always looked for new business strategies and opportunities. A few years later, the business started to gain potential customers. The business provides all kinds of fashionable dresses for women. The business is well known for adequately representing Haitian fashion design nationally and internationally. As the segment of market increases, the business needs to always stay up to date by acquiring three sewing machines, a generator, fabrics, and raw sewing materials to increase production. A loan from Zafen will result in a positive impact on the business’ financial performance.
