Challenge

Entrepreneurs du Monde has been present in Haiti since 2003. In 2020, our teams supported 800 entrepreneurs and equipped 500 families with lamps and improved solar cookers. But the onset of the earthquake has put the sustainability of our activities in jeopardy.

Solution

Our colleagues contacted all their beneficiaries to make a precise diagnosis of their needs and finalize a relevant and rapid action plan. They have also coordinated with other associations present on site. We need your support to set up two actions: 1- Income generating activities: reschedule the current loans, and if necessary, grant a small additional emergency loan at zero interest to restart the activity. 2- Access to energy: provide free improved solar lamps and clean stoves.

Long-Term Impact

If you give us the means, we will act quickly and effectively, as we did successfully after the 2010 earthquake, thanks to you! Together with you, we will help provide assistance to our beneficiaries in the short term and lift the country up in the long term.
