Le Modele De Dorneu Group's story

Kercita is the coordinator of her group "Le Modele de Dorneu". She is married and has five children. She lives in the northern region of Haiti where electricity is scarce and the water supply very limited.

Kercita has been running her own business, selling various products, for the past seven years. Before being involved in this type of business, she used to sell traditional crafts. She would like to use her loan to invest in such products as clothes, shoes, cosmetics etc. She hopes that this loan will help her to expand her business.

Other members of the group also need this loan to boost such businesses as charcoal sales, food product sales, cosmetic and shoe sales. According to Kercita, her main challenge is to become a major retailer.
