Investing in Haiti's People, Microfinance and Opportunity

LogoIn light of the earthquake, Haiti is in great need of financial assistance and guidance as the country recovers and rebuilds. While other organizations rush in, FINCA International reaches its 20-year anniversary in Haiti serving clients with their Village Banking method. Members of their offices were evacuated from Port-au-Prince and the good news is that all of FINCA's 180 staff are safe, and showed up for work the day after the quake to help their clients. They have been working to procure supplies like water and fuel, and will continue to do so, as long as there is this need. FINCA faces the upcoming challenges in Haiti with optimism and resolve. As relief efforts unfold, companies who contribute to FINCA's microfinance programs share that optimistic view and stand by FINCA and it's clients, anxious and hopeful that this disaster has not damaged Haiti's newly found entrepreneurial spirit.
