Flambeau De Petitanse Group's story

Monise is the coordinator for the "Flambeau de Petitanse" group. She is married and has three children. She lives in the north of Haiti where electricity is rare and where drinkable water is very limited. For the past three years, Monise has been selling various items. She will buy cosmetics, shoes, clothing, etc. Before starting her business, she was a shopkeeper. She hopes this loan will help her grow her business. The other members of Flambeau de Petitanse need loans for selling cosmetics, fish, carbonated beverages, groceries, etc. She says her main goal is to have a larger business that will help her travel to other countries in the Americas.
