Echo Mysterieux De Miniere 1, 2, 3 & 5 Group's story

Philamar is the coordinator of the group Echo Mysterieux de Miniere. He lives in the region of Minere in Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. He is not married. He is a father of fifteen children.

Philamar has been running his furniture-making business for the last five years. Before starting (in the making of furniture), he was just a farmer. He would like to use this loan for investing in hardware products.

Philamar hopes this loan will help him to expand his business. Some other group members have need of a loan for commerce, such as in charcoal or grocery items.

Philamar says that his main goal is to expand his business and to own a means to transport his goods.

In this group: Philamar, Ernase, Juline, Antonine, Marceline, Dulene, Eriveau, Analise, Garlene, Angeline, Delumene*, Saintilia, Elianne, Elusmene, Antoinise*, Monia, Altamene, Janette, Joachim, Rodeline
