Lamentation De Geremy Group's story

Edma is the coordinator of her group Lamentation de Geremy. She lives in the Trou-du-Nord region of Haiti where electricity is rare and water is very scarce. She has been managing her business selling coal for the last 4 years. She would like to use this loan to invest in coal; she bought wood for the coal.

The other members of the group need a loan for businesses such as selling foodstuffs, cosmetics, clothing, shoes and coal. Edma says that her main challenge is to sell more since the economic crisis in Haiti she does not receive much money.
