After Hurricane Matthew

‒‒  client stories  ‒‒

Sainte Rose Dorescat

In October of 2016, Hurricane Matthew struck Sainte Rose’s town near the city of Okay. The storm destroyed her house and all the crops in the small plot of land where she farms. Having worked years to build what she has lost in a matter of hours is painful for Sainte, but she is determined to pick up the pieces and start rebuilding her life.

 

A Solidarity client for over seven years, Sainte Rose was making great progress prior to the Hurricane. She was growing her small commerce business with the loans and accompaniment services Fonkoze provided her. So when Matthew hit, Fonkoze quickly conducted an assessment of the situation of clients who were affected by the storm. Over 14,000 borrowers like Sainte Rose were in its direct path. Based on the results of the evaluation, SFF began rescheduling loans and offering new ones to help clients quickly start to recover from the damages and rebuild their lives.

 

Sainte Rose took out a loan of about $500 and used part of it to purchase a new table on which to display the food products she sells. She used to spread the products on a blanket on the ground, but now, she thinks that her display at the market looks much more professional. Fortunately, She has been able to salvage a lot of the dry goods, thanks to what she learned in Fonkoze’s adult education classes on disaster preparedness.

 

Her small business is helping her to save money so that she and her husband can rebuild their small home. She says, “Fonkoze did great things for us after Matthew. It allowed us time to recuperate and pay off the credit that we had in hand… I don’t know any other bank that would give you a loan during these difficult moments. I hope that Fonkoze will always be able to help the most vulnerable.”
