September 2019 Port Margot Initial Loan Group

Although the political and economic chaos continues in Haiti, we have been able to maintain financial support both of our seamstresses and microloan women because of our supporters generosity. During the recent MN Gives campaign, we received $3400 in donations. Pictured above is our first loan group in Port Margot, our third microloan site. They received their loans of $250 each in September and were all able to repay their first loan installment plus interest on time last week. Our seamstresses submitted an invoice (noted above) for the work that they have completed in the last few months. They were able to sew these items because we had the funds to install solar panels and bring in upgraded sewing machines and bolts of fabric. Our inventory of completed products has continued to grow as the number of mission groups visiting Haiti has sharply decreased due to travel warnings. We are hopeful that when mission groups return, they will continue to remember our organization and our support of the hardworking Haitian women.
