See how money from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund has provided sales and marketing support for local artisans.
Their funds also helped these local business people rebuild their workshops, damaged during the earthquake. Through our support, artisans were able to complete their order to Macy's for its exclusive "Heart of Haiti" collection, inspired by the courage and culture of the Haitian people.
Clinton Bush Haiti Fund's recent loan to Fairwinds Trading, will expand this support to artisans in three additional communities and increase employment opportunities for Haitians — particularly women. This could sustain the employment of 740 artisans and artisan managers and provide secondary employment for 185 additional individuals.
Follow-up orders from Macy's could provide income to support 4,544 individuals.
