The goal of micro loans is to provide the local Haitians with the initial capital investment to begin a business or pursue a career that will help sustain their community and their families.
Loving Haiti began giving out small, no interest loans to community members of Pignon a few years ago. Everyone involved in this process has had great success. Every loan borrowed has been paid back in full except for the two newest loans that just transacted. The loans have ranged from buying products(computers, generators, printers) for the Haitians in the USA and shipping them to Haiti to loaning money for the purchase of a property for a local in Pignon.
After the loan has been paid back in full we can then turn it around and use it it for the next person in line waiting for a micro loan.
