Lemon lives in Haiti. Haiti as you might know is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. A country that has been beat up by natural disasters, political unrest, and now the Covid19 pandemic.
Lemon has a drive to support his family. His vocational trade is fish farming a skill he has learned working for a prominent aquaculture company that has since closed down this last year.
With a dream to provide education, food, and housing to his wife and children for years to come, Lemon qualified for SHINE’s Sustainable Hope Initiative. He submitted a business plan and after approval SHINE was able to provide a micro-loan sponsored by Trinity Constructors. The Sustainable Hope Initiative keeps Lemon in contact with local businessmen and women here in Lake and Sumter county for any available coaching and accountability to truly make this a sustainable project.
As Lemon is in the midst of getting his company going. We have found that fish food is in short supply and high demand for men and women doing similar projects. We have researched and set forth a plan that will fix this issue and at the same time will provide additional funds to help SHINE’s Sustainable Hope Initiative support more entrepreneurs looking to simply meet the essentials needs of their family despite the circumstances of their country.
We are looking to ship a 20-foot container full of fish food to sell in Port au Prince, Haiti. The profits of the fish food will go directly to providing another container (cycles of every 6 months) as well as funding future micro-loans.
If you, your family, or your business is interested in teaming up with us in giving to this project or sponsoring a micro-loan or even praying for specific needs, please check out our Join Us/Donate Tab!
