A loan of $4,750 helped a member to buy tennis shoes.


Les Phares De Ouanaminthe Group's story

Terlius is the coordinator of the 'Les Phares de Ouanaminthe' group. He is not married and doesn't have any children. Terlius lives in the town of Ouanaminthe, in Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. Terlius has run his business for the past six years. He would like to use this loan to invest in buying tennis shoes. Terlius hopes that this loan will help him to increase the size of his business. The other members of 'Les Phares' need a loan for businesses such as selling charcoal, rice and used clothes. Terlius says that his main challenge is a lack of regular customers. He says that his main goal is to increase his business. His dream is to buy a truck for transporting his merchandise.
