The idea is simple: Women start out by taking a small loan and committing to the program's guidelines to improve their family's health, standard of living and education. The better they do in every aspect of their lives, the more money they can borrow.


To succeed in business, you must start with something. Sheer will does not give an aspiring businessperson money to buy supplies. The Good Samaritan Foundation of Haiti, Inc. believes in its microloan program. We have seen how women seize the opportunities these loans provide.

 

Involvement of the local women extends far beyond the money they borrow. The program has an over-seeing committee comprised of women from the community and has been named by them - "Micro Credit et D'epargne Pour les Petites Marchandes de L'ile a Vache"

 

It's members are:

Micheline Sylvain Cabral - President

Imacula Geneus Joseph - Secretary

Anotine Josette Delva - Treasurer

Lexes Mascary - (Pastor) Counselor

Jean Nestor Destil - (Pastor) Counselor


Solving poverty in the most destitute country in the western hemisphere is not an easy thing to do. But for these women there is hope.  They have loans to repay and long days of work ahead of them.

In Haiti, it has always taken an entire village to ensure that its citizens can make a living. This has never been truer, as thousands of people struggle to find new sustainable livelihoods that will enable them to support their families.

 

Haitian women are considered the "center posts" of rural families and communities, often supporting their children through small enterprises in addition to farming. Yet for many Haitians, the only micro-loans available to support their small businesses have been from moneylenders who charge exorbitant interest rates.

 

The Good Samaritan Foundation of Haiti, Inc. Micro Loan program is dedicated to changing that reality.

 

You can help make a difference TODAY! Your gift will help to fuel this community-led micro-credit fund to provide local women with affordable loans for starting or maintaining small businesses. As a woman repays her loan, the money will be used to replenish the fund and give even more women access to affordable loans.

 

A small loan can make a big difference in providing the means for a sustainable livelihood. Donate today!
