Name: Benita
Location: Haiti

Microfinance Partner: Fonkoze

Benita has been a client of Whole Planet Foundation microfinance partner Fonkoze for many years. She started out as a street vendor and by virtue of hard work, long hours and additional small loans from Fonkoze, Benita was able to build a store in her front yard two years ago. With the help of her children, Benita not only runs the store but also runs a bread and sweet pastries business. Benita uses her profits to buy livestock, a valuable asset she can pass on to her children when they marry.
