Haiti - Fanm Limye
Fanm Limye (“Women Illuminated” in Haitian Creole) is Prosperity Catalyst’s for-profit enterprise hub in Port-au-Prince, providing business vocational training and market access to local and global markets. It began with four women making candles and now has expanded to support a constellation of 12 artisan businesses in Port-au-Prince, and four beekeeping associations, involving 310 beekeepers in the West Department. Through their involvement with Fanm Limye, these businesses, all working along a common value chain, have been strengthened so that they can produce bulk and high end products for local and export markets. The ultimate end of this work is to sustainably improve the income of vulnerable Haitian women and households.
