Facts about Haiti

Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere; 80 percent of its citizens live in poverty, and 54 percent, in abject poverty. The Haitian economy is still reeling from the 2010 earthquake. Remittances—money sent to Haiti by citizens working abroad—account for 20 percent of the country’s economy. In 2012, remittances accounted for more than five times the earnings from exports.

Launched in 1989, FINCA Haiti is one of the oldest subsidiaries in the FINCA network. In the face of national unemployment rates above 40 percent, FINCA Haiti supports small and startup microenterprises, enabling Haitians to create their own jobs. FINCA Haiti provides Village Banking, individual and local currency loans to clients in both rural and peri-urban areas of the country.
