Lambi Fund is working with the Youth Association of Sel (AJS) to help launch a community credit fund and grain storage facility.  While this project is just in its preliminary stages, the impending impacts on the community are exciting.  Our field monitors have been working hand-in-hand with AJS members to build organizational capacity and to provide them with the training necessary to manage a community credit fund, do bookkeeping and to manage a grain storage facility.  As these workshops take place, young Haitians are gaining valuable skills in project and financial management that will not only enable them to make this project a success but to apply these skills to other areas in their lives.   Once everything is up and running, the community credit fund will allow farmers access to affordable loans that will allow them to purchase more seeds, tools and supplies so that their crops produce more while the grain storage facility will provide AJS with the ability to purchase, store and sell affordable seeds.
