Moving forward... one planter at a time!

OPK (Oganizasyon Peyizan Kalabat) located in the Latibonit Region was founded in 1995.  With 384 members (261 Women and 123 Men), the organization spans across15 areas in the region.  In recent years, the members have faced very difficult economic situations.  Agriculture and trade have been halted due to the lack of funds needed to help them make small investments.  The agricuture in the region continues to worsen daily due to climate change as well - the lack of rainfall has been detrimental to production.  

Lambi partnered with OPK to help reinforce their community credit fund which, in turn, gave the members the means to buy the materials needed to jumpstart their planting activities.  The fund provided the organization with 750,000 haitian gourdes (approximately $8,300.00).  The funds were broken down with 500,000 htg allocated for merchants' credit and 200,000 htg for agricutural credit.  As of today, 201 loans have been disbursed (43 agricutlural/158 merchant).  That's 201 families that have received support that they would not have been able to gain without your support.  

Since the time the funds have been disbursed, the repayment rate has been applaudable with all of the members remaining on top of their due dates.  This allows for quicker distribution to the next in line.  These activities have not only helped the individual members and their families, but it has also reinforced the organizational strength of OPK.  These funds have allowed the members to provide for their families, take care of their communities and continue to rebuild the agricultural activities that will boost their economies.
