In our effort to encourage sustainability and development in the community of Bon Repos, Haiti. Ayiti Underground, a 501c3 nonprofit missional organization, have started a microloan program to assist many Haitian entrepreneurs in starting up and maintaining grassroot businesses.
A borrower applies for a loan, the business and reasoning for the loan is then assessed. If the loan is approved, they will will be facilitated through Ayiti Underground. This loan would be considered a partner loan, where borrowers apply to a local Field Partner, which then manages the loan on the ground.
The loan goes through a final social underwriting and approval process where trustworthiness is determined by friends and family lending a portion of the loan request and or individuals being in community with Ayiti Underground.
This is a 501c3 tax deductible loan through Ayiti Underground and is paid back, interest free over time. Once the loan is paid back the lender will be contacted to reinvest or withdraw the loan amount.
There is no guarantee that the loan will be paid back with the inherent risk in dealing with unpredicted circumstances, however this is the best way for 100% of your money to be donated to directly help and affect people wanting to rebuild their community and the nation of Haiti.
It’s not just about money, it’s about restoration, reconciliation, and rebuilding. It’s about building intentional relationships and community while fostering Christ centered growth. There is love in solidarity and knowing exactly where your money is being invested, in actually changing lives directly, one community at a time.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” ~Proverbs 31:8-9
