Tet Fret De Dumas 1, 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Antoine, who works in retail, is the coordinator of the "Tet Fret de Dumas 1, 2, 3 & 4" group. He lives in the Dumas region of Haiti where electricity is scarce and access to water very limited. He has been running his own business, selling charcoal and various other products, for the past 13 years.

Before he started in this business, Antoine used to be a student. He would now like to use his loan to buy charcoal, shoes, clothes and various other products. He is hoping that this loan will help him to grow his business. The group's other members also need a loan in order to operate their own food, cosmetics and charcoal businesses.

Antoine says that his main ambition and his dream are to gather enough money to acquire a major business, through God's grace.

In this group: Antoine, Rosena, Azulia, Andre, Monise, Chrismene, Derilia*, Renette, Rosena, Imane, Estilia*, Annania, Venise, Rosenadie, Mercilia, Coeurzilia*, Rolande, Amasilie, Fanila*, Bacivil
