Les Rayons De Borddermere1, 3, 4, 5 & 6 Group's story

Bertheleine is the coordinator of her group "Les Rayons de Borddemere". She works in retail business and lives in the Bord-de-Mere region of Haiti where electricity is scarce and the water supply very limited. Bertheleine has been managing her business (she sells various goods) for the past ten years.

Prior to working in retail business, Bertheleine used to be a seamstress. She would like to use her loan to invest in the purchase of various goods. She hopes that this loan will help her to expand her retail food business. Other members of the group need a loan to finance such activities as the sale of charcoal, clothes, shoes etc.

Bertheleine says that her main challenge is to become an important seller. She also says that her main goal and dream is to own a large business. She plans to reach her goal using her own funds and with the help of God.
