Refuge De Dumas 1 & 2 Group's story

Cantave is the coordinator of his group, Refuge de Dumas. He is married and has five children. Cantave lives in the city of Dumas in Haiti where electricity is rare and water is very limited. Cantave has managed his business for the past six years. Before starting his business, he was in school. Cantave would like to use this loan to invest in the purchase of cattle. He hopes this loan will help him expand his business. The other members of Refuge de Dumas need loans for businesses such as the sale of coal, rice, and fish. Cantave says that his main challenge is the lack of steady buyers. He says that his main goal is the growth of his business. His dream is the purchase of a truck to transport the animals.
