Severe weather events are just one of many obstacles hampering Haiti’s struggling economy. Entrepreneurs face a series of veritable obstacles just to register a new business. Banks are reluctant to provide loans to businesses they deem higher risk, and start-up costs are very high. Compassion Haiti believes that the best way to help beneficiaries break free from poverty is to empower them through education, helping them become successful entrepreneurs who are economically self-sufficient and can create jobs in their communities. To this end, 53 churches from four areas in the northern region of Haiti want to launch a multiphase initiative that would train 5,258 young adults aged 15 to 22 in valuable entrepreneurial skills, as well as providing a smaller, selected group with seed capital to launch their new businesses. Your donations go towards making this possible!
