Lavi Miyo De Savann Okan Group's story

Marie is the coordinator of the group Lavi Miyo. She is not married and has seven children. Marie lives in the savannah region in the northeastern camps of Haiti where electricity is rare and water is scarce.

Marie has managed her business selling a variety of products for the last six years. Before beginning this business Marie was a fish seller.

Marie would like to use this loan to invest in the sale of diverse products. She hopes that this loan will help her to obtain a bigger business. Other members of Lavi Miyo need a loan for businesses such as the sale of food products and cosmetics. Marie says that her dream is to have a grocer's shop.

In this group: Marie, Cidencie, Ismonia, Vileus, Germanie, Nanise, Rosie, Meliane, Dumy, Adulcia
