Twenty women received new loans in August – 10 in Limbe and 10 in Ranquitte. In addition, 7 women from the initial loan group in May of 2012 received an additional $100 each as they successfully renewed their initial loans for a third time. The second loan group of 12 women from Sept of 2012 will soon be renewing their loans for the third time and also each receive an additional $100. While this is very exciting for the women, as they have successfully grown their small businesses and can now have even more operating funds, it is somewhat scary for us as an organization. We would like to continue to fund 30-40 new loans each year, in addition to rewarding women who have been successful over three years, but this will take extra fundraising and donations. Many women are still on a waiting list for their initial loans. Please consider donations to Helping Haiti Work.
