Haiti: Micro-Credit Fund for Youth

by Lambi Fund of Haiti
$1,625 Raised
total goal
monthly donors
Help 50 young farmers buy seeds and tools and get training on organic farming. The crops they raise will help feed their families and provide an income from sales at the local market.


Members of the Youth Association of Sica are poor. Many young people remain without work. The group asked the Lambi Fund for a micro-credit fund that would seed small organic farming enterprises for its members and provide capital to set up a small business at the local market.


Lambi seeds the loans to 50 members to buy supplies to start farming or to purchase goods to start small market enterprises. Lambi works with the farmers on organic farming techniques and trains the entrepreneurs on business management skills.

Long-Term Impact

Within six months, 50 young people will have a full stomach, have enough food to help feed their families, and be on the road to working their way out of poverty.
