Puissance De Philibert Group's story

Marline is the coordinator of her group Puissance de Philibert. She is a merchant and lives in the Philibert region of Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. Marline has been running her general store for three years.

Marline would like to use this loan to invest in various goods. She hopes that this loan will help her to expand her business. Some other active members have need of a loan for such business as selling charcoal, clothing, shoes, and more. Marline says that her main challenge is to become a major merchant. She says that her main goal and dream is to own a large store through her capital and by the grace of God.
