Paix De Jesus Group's story

Cleanta is the coordinator of her group, Paix de Jesus ("Peace of Jesus"), in the northern region of Haiti where electricity is scarce and water is very limited. She is unmarried and has two children. Cleanta has had her business selling diverse products for the last five years.
Before starting her business, Cleanta was a student. She would like to use this loan for selling diverse products. She hopes that this loan will allow her to make more sales. The other Paix de Jesus group members need a loan for businesses such as selling coal, clothing, and cosmetics. She says that her main challenge is having enough money to increase her sales.

In this group: Cleanta, Magda, Estelia, Louise, Alciuspaulna, Thelusnor, Marierose, Guerline*, Mirmerose, Tocilia
