Jesus Reel De Bras De Lance Group's story

Edilienne is the coordinator of her group JESUS REEL DE BRAS DE LANCE. She is a widow and has three children. She lives in northern Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited.

Edilienne has been running her business selling cooked foods for the last six years. Before starting this business, she used to be a farmer. She would like to use this loan to invest in a restaurant in which to sell various items, such as soft drinks. She hopes that this loan will help her to have a larger business.

She says that her main challenges include a lack of customers and too many people asking her for credit. She says her main goal is to have a larger loan in order to have a larger business, with God's help.

The other members of her group have need of a loan for such businesses as a variety store or selling cosmetic products.

In this group: Edilienne, Mercina, Marielude, Marc, Christianise, Judeline, Zacharie, Zilta, Rosemene, Miyantha, Daniel, Yolette*, Marierose, Exilia, Danise
