USAID/Haiti Microfinance: A Portfolio Review

This is a rapid assessment of the USAID/Haiti Mission portfolio of microfinance support programs. The primary purpose is to assess performance of existing programs, measure progress with respect to targeted objectives, and suggest guidance for follow-on activities. The programs assessed include DAI/FINNET, FINCA/Haiti, and SOFIHDES/Enterprise Finance Facility (EFF). This assessment was carried out in roughly the same time frame as an assessment of the Mission’s program of assistance to Haitian artisans through a cooperative agreement with Aid to Artisans and an assessment and redesign of the Hillside Agriculture Program (HAP).
