Each of its four Steps is uniquely designed to provide a woman with the resources and support that she needs to ascend from poverty, wherever she is in her climb. Along with the four main Steps, Fonkoze’s Staircase includes “Handrails”—programs that provide our members and clients with business skills training, education, and health services to support them as they progress. Our accompaniment is designed to help women succeed as they do the hard work required to climb the Staircase, creating a better future for themselves and their families. Step One: Chemen Lavi Miyò (CLM) Chemen Lavi Miyò (CLM), or “the pathway to a better life,” provides Haiti’s poorest women with the tools and support needed to pull themselves and their families from ultra poverty into self-sufficiency, with hope and vision for their futures. Learn more Step Two: Ti Kredi Ti Kredi (“Little Credit”) provides microfinance services, along with business skills training, mentoring, and weekly life skills education, to women who do not qualify as ultra-poor, but who remain incredibly vulnerable, both personally and financially. Learn more Step Three: Solidarity Solidarity lending, Fonkoze’s core microfinance program, provides joint loans to groups of five women (called a Solidarity group). Learn more Step Four: Business Development Fonkoze’s Business Development program provides clients with individual 12-month loans beginning at $1,300, helping entrepreneurs generate essential economic activity and create jobs in rural areas throughout Haiti. Learn more The “Handrails” In addition to our microfinance programs, Fonkoze provides Education and Health services, and Business Skills Training which serve as Handrails to support our clients along their climb up the Staircase Out of Poverty.
