Partner Description:

Entrepreneurs du Monde - Palmis Mikwofinans Sosyal provides financial and social services to low-income entrepreneurs in Haiti’s townships. Haiti is the poorest country in the Americas and is also a challenging environment to operate in because of the high rate of natural disasters, including the devastating 2010 earthquake.

A unique lending approach:

Entrepreneurs du Monde - Palmis Mikwofinans Sosyal offers a range of loans tailored to the needs of different borrowers.  This allows borrowers to graduate to larger loan sizes while continuously benefiting from a comprehensive package of non-financial, social services. Traditionally, borrowers start with the “Ti Kredit,” or small loan, before enrolling into a SOLVA group loan, and subsequently graduating to individual and small enterprise loans.
