Kes Pa Nou (Mc)'s story

Marie-Claudette is living in Carrefour Feuilles, a suburb in the south of Port-au-Prince. Carrefour-Feuilles is one of the numerous poor neighborhoods in the capital. The 2010 earthquake left thousands dead in that area. Marie-Claudette's house had some repairable splits. Since then, she has been earning her living with a small grocery store that provides food and schooling for all her five children.

Marie-Claudette, like many Zafen borrowers, has much courage to fight against poverty. That's why she does not give up strengthening 25 other women in her community. Today, she is in the committee board of a group. She is looking for a loan to buy food and home products in bulk to retail during Christmas.
