Lumiere Celeste De Grande Savanne Group's story

Israel is the coordinator of the Lumiere de Celeste de Grande Savanne group. He lives in the Grande Savanne area of Haiti where electricity is scarce and water is very limited. He has been running his shoe business for 5 years. He is married and has three children. Israel wants to use this loan to invest in purchasing shoes. He hopes that this loan will help him expand his business. Other Lumiere de Celeste members need a loan for such businesses as selling charcoal, various products, clothing. Israel says his main challenge is to become a great trader. He says his main goal and dream is to become the owner of a large business using his own funds, with the mercy of God.
