Help Lambi Fund provide increased opportunities for sustainable income and livelihoods for those displaced by the earthquake to become productive self-sufficient members of their new communities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Displaced peasants in rural Haiti need immediate access to affordable micro credit to replenish or start new small businesses. Help establish a community micro-credit fund that will allow members of organizations to purchase goods and products necessary for establishing small businesses.

How will this project solve this problem?

Establish community micro-credit funds so earthquake survivors can earn a sustainable living. Access to affordable credit will allow displaced persons to establish enterprises for sustainable incomes. Most beneficiaries are women.

Potential Long Term Impact

Strengthen self-sufficiency and local economies by expanding small businesses.
