Small loans making a difference for women in Haiti

Distributing emergency grants post-quake
Distributing emergency grants post-quake

It’s been six months since January’s devastating earthquake hit Haiti. To say it’s been difficult for Haitians to get back on their feet is an understatement, yet thanks to your generosity many small merchants have been able to continue working.

Following the earthquake, small merchants like Georges Ycelda struggled to continue selling goods in the market. Money was gone, inventory was gone and the need immense. As Georges explains, a small microcredit loan provided by Lambi Fund allowed her the finances needed to increase her inventory and to generate significant profits. Now, Georges can meet the wants and needs of her family. As she explains, “this project has made me feel that I am a strong woman who is making important contributions to my family and my community.”

Provide more women like Georges with the opportunity to establish small-business enterprises and provide for their families- continue your support today.

Day by day, expanding food production in Haiti

Just six months ago, January's devastating earthquake hit Haiti. Since then, the Lambi Fund of Haiti has been working relentlessly with local farmers’ organizations throughout rural Haiti to expand local crop production, improve farming technology and to provide farmers with the credit, seeds and tools they need to succeed. Strengthening Haiti’s agriculture sector will be a key component in the effective recovery of Haiti. Increased food production will provide valuable incomes for farmers, while providing local and affordable sources of food to Haitians. Thanks to your support, these efforts continue to yield results. Lambi Fund just completed the construction of a community grain mill in Southwest Haiti. Members of ODRO (Organization for the Development of Robert) provided labor and community resources to realize the mill’s completion. Just days ago, the motor for the grain mill arrived and was installed in the newly constructed grain mill. Now, members of the ODRO community no longer need to walk 2-3 hours to the nearest grain mill. Haitian farmers can enjoy the increased productivity and higher quality of milled grains right in their village.

Help more sustainable agriculture projects like these become a reality, and continue your support today.
