The story of Mecianie Casseus in Haiti
The new post by Wilson Ozil, Regional Director for CLM, on Steve Werlin’s blog tells the story of Mecianie Casseus is a forty-seven-year-old mother of ten.
As Oranie Pierre’s story posted last month, Mecianie’s story touches upon issues of gender relations within the CLM program:
“She said that the program has done so much for her. At asset transfer, she received two goats and a pig. She now has five goats, two pigs, a horse, a cow, few turkeys and some chickens. She said that her husband didn’t contribute much to the house before CLM. He had other women and he wasted the little money he made as a day laborer on them. Now he is working together with me to help the family build a good asset base. She mentioned that as a matter of fact, he is the one encouraging her not to waste but to save.”
