L'union De Senzidor Group's story

Denis is the co-ordinator of the "Union de Senzidor" Group. He lives in the north of Haïti where electricity supplies are rare and water supplies are very limited. He has operated a sales business for the past 5 years, and has 2 children. Before working in sales, he was a teacher. He will use his loan to buy cosmetics, clothes and shoes for resale. Denis hopes that this loan will help him to increase the size of his business.

The other members of the "Union de Senzidor" Group will use their loans to help with their food, cosmetics and charcoal businesses.

Denis says that his biggest challenge is finding loyal customers, and selling on credit makes it difficult to run his business. His dream is to work with the field partner Esperanza to develop a larger business.

In this group: Denis, Auguste, Telusmene, Annalouise, Ifetena, Jccillon, Judette, Ghisline, Jacson, Francette, Edilene, Rosenie, Assilie, Grantilde, Annette*, Milouse, Ronald*, Amilia, Nazulia*
