Les Rayons De Borddemere Group's story

Bertheleine is the coordinator of her group, Les Rayons de Borddemere. She is a businesswoman. She lives in the Bord-de-Mere region of Haïti where electricity is rare and water is very limited. Bertheleine has managed her business of selling various products for 11 years.

Before starting this business, Bertheleine was a seamstress. She would like to use this loan to invest in her various products. She hopes that this loan will help her to build up her business of selling grocery products.

Other members of the group need loans for businesses such as selling charcoal, clothing, shoes, and other products. Bertheleine says that the main challenge was becoming a business woman. She says that her goal and her dream is to own a big business with her own money, by the grace of God.
