Aretha Was Right: Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves

By Karen Ashmore | Project Leader

Despite the many difficulties related to the corrupt and violent political/economic situation Haiti is currently facing, the women in rural areas stand strong and are making great strides.

A Lambi Fund management consultant met with the women members of Organization of Planters for the Development of the Gwomòn River (OPDERGM) and conducted training on managing a women’s credit union. Thirty women learned about management and accounting of a credit loan portfolio. 

They participated in this training for two days and the discussions took place on the following points: 

  • project management structure (different committees) 
  • roles of the different committees 
  • project strategy 
  • tools management such as project accounting book, loan contract sheet, etc.

The business activity continues to flourish, which allows the repayments to be made every month even when there is a slight delay. The organization estimates the reimbursement rate to be 80-85%.  Several more women have joined the project for a total of 45 women participants.
