Lambi Fund made available $90,000 USD (8,730,000 gdes @ 97gdes/$1 USD) to small farmers and women’s projects of participating organizations to help them resume their economic activities.These funds allowed the small farmers to resume production of fast-growing crops, (some of which have already matured and harvested) and some women’s organizations with small trade projects to relaunch their activities by replacing merchandise that was lost during the earthquake. A total of 478 members of organizations benefitted so far from this program: 352 farmers from 16 of peasant organizations and 126 women of 6 organizations.
Lambi Fund did not raise enough funds last year to satisfy the need of all the requests that were submitted by its peasant/women organizations on the projected budget of the relief plan.A hard decision was made to support some organizations, and leave the rest for later, as more funds come in.The Regional Monitor for the South, with his recent program report reminded the Program Director of the remaining essential need for assistance to organizations that did not benefit of the Phase 2 funding.On the report he reiterated a list of 15 organizations (11 farmer organizations and 4 Women organizations). As usual, Lambi Fund would only assist 20 members per organization i.e. 300 members currently expecting assistance. Those members will be selected by the leadership committee of each peasant organization. The cost for providing relief at the same level previously adopted under the Phase 2 plan converts to 5,600,000 Haitian gourdes or $56,000 USD.
