Tet Trankil De Saillants 1, 2 & 3 Group's story

Marc lives in Trou-du-Nord, a municipality located in the northern part of Haiti where electricity is scarce and the water supply very limited. He has been running his own business for seven years and he would like to use his loan to invest in the purchase of coal. He hopes that this loan will help him to expand his business. He is not married and has five children. Marc is the coordinator of his group "Tet Trankil". Other members in Marc's group also need this loan to boost such businesses as coal, rice or fish sales. According to Marc, his main challenge is that he can never attract enough customers. He says that his main goal is to expand his business. His dream is to buy a motorcycle to be able to transport materials.

In this group: Marc, Paulene*, Dorlus, Fraciette, Cleanta, Rosemane, Merilus*, Jocelyne, Cherie, Wilmain, Emilia, Christiane, Niala, Elienne, Jacob
