Yesterday I spent six hours with Marilyn Bayonet, the Fonkoze client living in a tent on her grandmother’s land (which she inherited some years back) whom I interviewed in June. It was an incredible opportunity to delve into the complex, and improving, life of a microfinance client. Once I get to a place that allows me to upload photos and short videos, I’ll upload my blog about the day. I have written something but it is really not complete without the audio-visual enhancements. Thanks for your patience!
Today I am sitting in on a workshop of center chiefs in Marigot and then will re-interview “Madam Marc Josef”, the “mother hen” center chief from the mountain I blogged about last month. Since I last saw her, she went to the Fonkoze annual assembly in Port-au-Prince, and she and others in her center likely received the insurance payout from the damage they sustained from the floods in May. So there will be lots to talk about.
