Kenbe Fem 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Emmanuel is the coordinator of his group, Kenbe Fem. He is not married, but he has two children.

Emmanuel lives in the town of Paulette in Haiti where electricity is rare and running water is very limited. He has been running his business for the last five years. Before beginning this business, he was at school.

Emmanuel would like to use this loan to invest in buying fuel. He hopes that the loan will help him to expand his business. Other members of Kenbe Fem need a loan for businesses such as selling charcoal, rice and fish.

Emmanuel says his main challenge is not having buyers all of the time. His main goal is to grow his business. His dream is to buy a motorcycle so he can transport things like flour.

In this group: Emmanuel, Telusmar, Nanie, Antonia, Emmanuel, Eliphete*, Angerlande, Degeline, Altagrace, Ozamene*, Antoine, Roselourdes, Elvincia, Angemarie, Rose C.
