La Bonne Semence De Ouanaminthe Group's story

Jeannine is the coordinator of her group La Bonne Semence de Ouanaminthe. She is married, and she has six children.

Jeannine lives in the region of OUANAMINTHE in Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. She has been managing her tennis shoes business for the last five years.

She would like to use this loan to invest in buying athletic shoes for women, men, and children. Jeannine hopes that this loan will help her to expand her enterprise.

Some other members of her group have need of a loan for such businesses as charcoal, a general store, cosmetics, hardware, etc. Jeannine says that her main challenge is to become a major merchant.
