CHES Trains Women Artisans in La Gonàve, Haiti

We actively seek Haitian products to sell to raise funds for CHES. When we saw the lovely hand-painted scarves of the women of La Gonàve, we wanted to get our hands on them! They offered another opportunity to engage with them. They had just started-up their business, needed business education and asked us to help. We at CHES hosted a 3-day business workshop for these women entrepreneurs in La Gonàve, Haiti.

CHES Finances Women Entrepreneurs to Launch a Food Warehouse in Limbe, Haiti

Starting in 2012, we at CHES worked with five women entrepreneurs on their business plan. It was a food warehouse that sells organic Haitian produce in Limbe, Northern Haiti called Pwodwi Lakay or PWOL (“Home-Grown Goods” in Kreyòl). Our work with PWOL culminated to CHES, fund-raising the start-up funds, traveling to Haiti to host business workshops and a promotional launch event in the warehouse. PWOL continues to exist today.
