Enise lives in Cap-Haitian, about 156 miles north of Port-au-Prince. She owns a little grocery store which generates $US 182 monthly, and also works as an agricultural technician.
Enise has been an EarthSpark/clean energy retailer for eight months. She has always paid her balance on time, and as her client-base grows more and more people ask her for more products from EarthSpark’s Eneji Pwop brand.
She would like to buy more products so she can serve more people. She is very excited about the Eneji Pwop products, and says she sells the products because she wants to help people who are living in the country and have no electricity access.
Enise wants to borrow 51,175 HTG so she can buy more products from Eneji Pwop. People in her area pay a lot of money to have their phones charged, and Enise wants buy more 'Tipowa' and 'Powa Pak' products to help them out. Enise estimates this loan will enable her to sell about 5000 HTG worth of products per week. She has prepared a very good marketing plan to get people to buy her products, with ideas such as bracelets, brochures and t-shirts.
