A loan of $6,100 helped a member to buy cosmetics.


Les Fidele De Dilaire Group's story

Paulimus is the coordinator of the Fideles de Dilaire group. He is not married and has three children. Paulimus lives in the north of Haiti, where electricity is rare and drinking water is very limited.

Paulimus has been running a business selling cosmetics for the past eight years. With this loan, he will invest in buying cosmetics. He hopes that this loan will help him expand his business.

The other group members need a loan for their businesses which sell cosmetics, charcoal, shoes, etc.

Paulimus says his main challenge is becoming a great merchant. His main goal is to have a large business which will facilitate him building a larger house, with the help of Esperanza International.

In this group: Paulimus, Miliette, Elienne, Odre, Rodiane, Guerlyn, Orminard*, Magarette, Marie, Monie, Emma, Clerecilia, Elourde, Jeancius, Virgina, Sonise*, Edeline, Rosemaine*, Viergehelene, Berthilia*
