Equilibre De Ouanaminthe Group's story

Marielourdes is the coordinator of the "Equilibre de Oaunaminthe" group. She is married and has a child. She lives in the Northern region of Haiti, where electricity is rare and the supply of drinkable water is limited.

She has been running a business selling food products for the last 9 years. She hopes that this loan will help her to expand her business. The other members of the "Equilibre de Oaunaminthe" group need loans to sell items like beauty products and fizzy drinks.

Marielourdes says that her main challenge is to become a larger retailer in the north eastern province. Her main aim is to have a large business which will enable her to build a big house with the help of Esperanza Int.

In this group: Marielourdes, Antide, Altanie, Mimerose, Anita, Eromene, Lociana, Martine, Mathe, Elide, Roselene, Altagrace, Marie, Luciefrancilia, Eliane, Helene*, Imene, Dieula, Decius*, Sylvenir, Elmirise, Camilia, Annette, Roselene*, Lumage*
