Haiti Hope was a $10 million mango project sponsored by Coca-Cola Company (TCCC), the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); and the Soros Foundation. The Haiti Hope Project’s primary objective is to raise the income of 25,000 mango farmers. The farmers will increase their income by over 100 percent on average after five years in the program.
Despite a decline in both monetary and multidimensional poverty rates since 2000, Haiti remains among the poorest and most unequal countries in Latin America. Two years after the 2010 earthquake, poverty was still high, particularly in rural areas. This report establishes that in 2012 more than one in two Haitians was poor, living on less than $ 2.41 a day, and one person in four was living below the national extreme poverty line of $1.23 a day.
The objective of this report is to provide project PAER participants and implementing partners with an entry point for understanding the production and marketing strategies among the targeted beneficiaries, to detail programme activities and expected outputs and outcomes. There are some 700,000 women, men, and children in the Department of the North West and the commune of Anse Rouge.
In this study information was gathered from Navassa Island as well as the coastal regions of the Southwestern tip of Haiti concentrating on the area between Les Cayes in the south to Jérémie in the north.
