Les Phares De Ouanaminthe Group's story

Terlius is the coordinator of his group LES PHARES DE OUANAMINTHE. He is unmarried and has no children. He lives in the city of OUANAMINTHE in Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. Terlius has been running his business for the last six years. He would like to use this loan to invest in buying tennis shoes. He hopes that this loan will help to expand his business. The other members of Les Phares have need of a loan for such businesses as selling charcoal, rice, shoes, and clothing. Terlius says that his main challenge is a lack of regular customers. His dream is to buy a truck to transport merchandise. Terlius says his main goals include increasing his business.
