Diyite De Piste 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Luma is the coordinator of the Diyite de Pistere group. He is single and has four children. Luma lives in the northern region of Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. Luma has run his business for the past 15 years. Before starting this business, he sold foodstuffs and carbonated beverages. She would like to use this loan to invest in buying carbonated beverages. Other members (of his group) need loans for business activities such as selling coal and various other products. Luma says that his main goal is to have a larger business.
