Beginning in 2012, GROW began making investment loans to young entrepreneurs in Haiti. These loans were made to help start and grow businesses being run by young leaders with the training, ideas, and motivation to run a business but without the start-up funds or collateral generally required to start a business.
Thus far, GROW has given three such loans. We work closely with the loan recipients who also have mentors through Partners Worldwide, a faith-based organization working to strengthen economies around the world.
We look forward to expanding this program in the coming years, and are actively seeking additional partners and opportunities to improve the model and our impact!
