Currently Fenel Jean coordinates, mentors and educates with the eventual goal to move towards a cooperative model. With additional funding this program will gradually expand, to a manageable number of groups, and to a maximum loan of $250.
The first group of women received $50 each. All four successfully repaid and received the next loan of $100. Another group of four women was chosen. Each received a $50 loan.
Two of the first four women now have a business selling food at the school and clinic, and two sell goods from their homes high in the mountains.
