OBS Assuring an Increase in Local Food Production

"Three years ago Organization Bon Samaritain, OBS,  had a dream of supplying women selling cereals an improved process.  They said after twenty years, we still face  six hours of walking sometimes to mill our rice, millet and corn.  It is our women and children who sometimes spend the night away from home waiting for our rice to be milled, our corn and millet turned to edible cereals. Often we have to take our girls out of school so they can help us carry the goods". said the coordinator of the Association. Yet it is that process that gives us the ability to send the kids  to school, but the process deprive them of the school we value so much.  

"Well now there is the OBS mill with the help of the Lambi Fund.  I have never been so proud to walk in the bank to deposit money in my account.. the same bank that would not lend me a penny.  Today our mill is changing all that.  Not only I walk in with my head up high, I also have an organization that backs me up, lend me money at 2% and my business as a farmer is paying school, shelter and save for an emergency"

Just to share with you how the mills are maintening the local production of food on the rise:  In the first six month of functionning, the mill at OBS has  transformed 170,850 pounds of millet, corn and rice into eatable cereal.

During the 20 years of existence, the Lambi Fund of Haiti has partnered with rural peasant organization to establsh 120 mills to produce basic staples and increase the local production of millet, rice, cornmeal.
